The Emergency Contraception Website - Your website for the "Morning After"

Looking for Emergency Contraception NOW in Canada?


There are now two brands of dedicated emergency contraceptive pills available in Candada: Plan B and NorLevo. These are available in most of Canada without prescription. In most provinces, EC is available over the counter. However, in Quebec, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, Plan B and NorLevo are sold behind the counter; in these provinces, you must ask the pharmacist for these pills. Call ahead to check availability.


If you already have a pack of regular birth control pills, you may be able to use them for emergency contraception (click here to find out more about which oral contraceptives have been proven safe and effective for preventing pregnancy after sex). However, these brands of pills are not as effective as pills containing only progestin, such as Plan B or NorLevo.
