This does not apply to interpreters, support workers and families / caregivers with young children. If this is an issue for you, please speak to your health care provider. Thank you!

  • Our STI Klinic service remains open – but we are changing how we provide service. To reduce  the chance of transmission of COVID-19, we will temporarily move to telephone care (as much as possible). Please phone us at 204-784-4090 to book a phone appointment for STI Klinic. These appointments will be between 4:00PM and 6:30PM, every Tuesday through Thursday and Friday 10 until 2 pm. You can phone any time during regular office hours to book an appointment. Please note STI service is limited to the following: if you have a recent sexual partner who has tested positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis or HIV or if you have symptoms of an STI, you were told to come in for testing or treatment, if you have experienced sexual assault and for emergency contraception.
    We ask that you delay coming in for non-essential services such as routine testing without symptoms, genital wart treatment and immunizations. Effective Saturday March 28th, STI Klinic will not be operating on Saturdays indefinitely.
  • Our Teen Klinic service remains open – but we are changing how we provide service. To reduce  the chance of transmission of COVID-19, we will temporarily move to telephone care (as much as possible). Please phone us at 204-784-4090 to book a phone appointment for Teen Klinic. These appointments will be between 4:00PM and 6:30PM, every Monday starting March 30th, 2020. You can phone any time during regular office hours. We will temporarily reduce our services and will not be offering routine STI screening, genital wart treatment, pap testing or immunizations.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
