The Group's Purpose

Opt in the Kootenays reflects support to our pop-up clinics in Castlegar, Creston, Cranbrook, Kaslo, Invermere, Fernie, Nakusp, Nelson, Trail, Grandforks, Midway and Selkirk College.

As a champion of sexual health for all British Columbians, Opt exists in large cities and small towns. Communities in the Kootenays can be isolated, even from each other and Opt is often not only the first positive interaction with health care, it may be the only low barrier options at all. A growing issue for our clinics in the Kootenays is ensuring nurses on staff are well trained and supported to deliver effective, timely and professional care. Clinical support to their practice as well as funds to ensure even those that struggle financially can get what they need is the goal for this campaign.

About the Organizers

Options for Sexual Health is BC’s Planned Parenthood. When we changed our name from Planned Parenthood Association of British Columbia to Options for Sexual Health in 2003, we wanted to show that we did more than just "plan parenthood".

At Opt, we offer sexual and reproductive health care, information, and education from a feminist, pro-choice, sex-positive perspective.
