About Us

WHC is a feminist community health clinic in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Since 1981, we have offered a range of services.  We maintain the name Women’s Health Clinic due to the history and ongoing need for a safe place for women. We welcome other genders including Two-Spirit, genderqueer, trans and non-binary people.  We also welcome males in some programs, recognizing that there are barriers to care for all genders.

Our holistic approach to health emphasizes prevention, education and action.  We encourage people to learn all they can about what contributes to their health and well-being so they can make informed choices.

Mission & Vision

VISION: We promote people’s agency as we believe that all people should be empowered to take care of their mental, emotional, physical, sexual, and spiritual health and well-being.

 

Our Values

Our approach to service delivery is based on the following principles and consistent with our organizational values. We use these principles to guide our programs, policies and actions.

  • We recognize and honour intersectionality – multi-layered experiences and identities.
  • We embrace anti-oppressive, feminist, anti-racist, intersectional, inclusive and 2SLGBTQ+ experiences and frameworks. This is also reflected in our staff, volunteers and Board of Directors.
  • We commit to the principles of decolonization and reconciliation, and the integration of the TRC calls to action in our work. • We are mindful about amplifying people’s voices.
  • We advocate.
  • We celebrate our diversity and embrace having fun together.
