 h English (en)Generally, Canada has a high rate of contraceptive use. It's estimated that over 70% of Canadian women (of reproductive age) use modern contraceptive methods, and about 22% of Canadian men have underwent male sterilization.<ref>[http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/pdf/family/trendsContraceptiveUse2015Report.pdf Trends in
Contraceptive Use Worldwide 2015]</ref> Yet some women still face difficulty when trying to access birth control. The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada found that Canadian women have less birth-control options than women in other developed countries.<ref>[http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/health/canadians-feel-the-cost-of-health-policies-limiting-access-to-birth-control/article23883108/ It's time to give Canadian women more options when it comes to birth control, experts say]</ref> Furthermore, the Canadian Contraception Consensus report found that 15% of sexually-active Canadian women aren't using any form of birth control, and 20% are using birth control inconsistently. The largest barrier  is probably cost. Contraceptives aren't free under Canada's universal health care plan, and affordable birth control options are typically found through the public sexual health clinics (which can have limited drug choices, limited opening hours and long wait times). It should be stressed, however, that these clinics do provide affordable options and are an invaluable resource in Canada.<ref>[http://www.metronews.ca/life/health/2016/01/11/canada-birth-control-policy-needs-overhaul.html Canada lags behind other nations in birth control access, and it's costing us]</ref>
 h French (fr)De manière générale, l'usage de contraceptifs est assez répandu dans tout le pays. On estime que plus de 70 % des femmes en âge de procréer utilisent une méthode de contraception moderne, et environ 22 % des hommes ont subi une vasectomie. <ref>[http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/pdf/family/trendsContraceptiveUse2015Report.pdf Trends in
Contraceptive Use Worldwide 2015]</ref> Malgré tout, l'accès aux différentes méthodes n'est pas toujours sans difficulté pour les femmes. La Société des obstétriciens et gynécologues du Canada estime que les Canadiennes ont, de manière générale, moins facilement accès à la contraception que les femmes des autres pays développés. <ref>[http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/health/canadians-feel-the-cost-of-health-policies-limiting-access-to-birth-control/article23883108/ It's time to give Canadian women more options when it comes to birth control, experts say]</ref> De plus, selon le rapport du Groupe d'étude canadien sur les soins de santé préventifs, 15 % des femmes sexuellement actives n'utilisent aucune méthode contraceptive, et 20 % le font de manière irrégulière. Le coût peut être une contrainte, quand on sait que les contraceptifs ne sont pas totalement remboursés par le système de santé public canadien. Néanmoins, des contraceptifs abordables sont offerts dans les cliniques de santé sexuelle (qui peuvent toutefois avoir une choix limité, des heures d'ouverture restreintes et de longs temps d'attente). Malgré ces quelques failles, ces cliniques demeurent une ressource incontournable pour la santé reproductive des femmes (et des hommes).<ref>[http://www.metronews.ca/life/health/2016/01/11/canada-birth-control-policy-needs-overhaul.html Canada lags behind other nations in birth control access, and it's costing us]</ref>
