"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God"
Our Vision & Values
The Victoria Pregnancy Centre is a Christian-based organization; which means we aim to show the love of God to each and every person that comes through our door. We do that by extending grace, compassion and respect to the clients that we serve.
We offer FREE peer-lead programs and services that are committed to:
Empowering Individuals to make fully informed and self-directed decisions. We do this by offering information that is accurate, evidence-based and non-judgmental.
Creating Safety by supporting individuals in making decisions that are consistent with their values and by providing supports for all pregnancy outcomes.
Creating Options by offering programs and services that address the cultural, social, spiritual and economic concerns which cause individuals to see abortion as their only option to unexpected pregnancy.
All services are confidential and offered regardless of race, colour, religion, creed, national origin, age, ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, lifestyle or circumstances.
As a charity, we are supported by the generosity and kindness of individual donors, foundations, agencies, corporations, churches and promotional events. We do not receive government funding for our care.

Who We Serve
Our Clients & Community
Many of our clients have limited support systems and limited resources which all contribute to a cycle of limited choices. This can often lead to feelings of ambivalence when it comes to pregnancy options.
We provide alternatives and options for women and families who may feel that they have no other choice but an unwanted abortion. We work with them to reduce the economic, educational and isolation barriers to parenting.
We create a safe environment by supporting individuals of all races, religions and sexuality in making informed decisions that are consistent with their own values and by providing supports for all pregnancy outcomes.
Our clients often feel alone, and many of them are isolated from friends and family physically because of a move or immigration, work or unsupportive relationships. Clients who are new to Vancouver Island often feel isolated from this community. Our role is to provide not only a personal link, but also a community link. We do this in a number of ways and offer the following free services:
Doula - a trained birth companion and labour support
New parents groups
Practical skills training through The Bright Course
Friends of VPC Church groups
Support after abortion
There are many ways you can help us support families in our community!
