Sexual Health Centres

Due to COVID-19, limited in-person appointments are available at our 277 Welland Ave., St. Catharines location. To book an appointment or speak with a nurse call 905-688-3817 or 1-800-263-5757.

Our Fort Erie, Niagara Falls and Welland Sexual Health Centres are closed at this time.

No walk-ins (unless you're picking up free condoms from our St. Catharines location).


Our sexual health centres are staffed by nurses that provide:

  • Sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment
  • Birth control
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Morning-after pill
    • If you forgot to use birth control, didn't take your birth control on time, or had a condom break, you can take the morning-after pill within five days of having sex to reduce your chance of pregnancy. If you forgot to take your birth control on time, get back on schedule.
    • You can buy the morning-after pill from a sexual health centre, outreach nurse or over the counter at all pharmacies
  • Unplanned pregnancy options counselling
  • Free condom
  • Outreach nurse services

You don't need a health card to visit a sexual health centre. All services are free and confidential.


If you're a student attending a post-secondary institution, your school website will have information on STI testing and other on-campus health services:
