Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region sign now

For over 30 years, Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region has been providing the community with positive education and counseling concerning important issues such as: healthy relationships, contraception, family planning and sexually transmitted infections. This is an essential community service that was accessed by thousands of individuals last year alone.

Unfortunately, a severe lack of funding may force Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region to close its doors at the end of March. Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region currently receives funding only by the Region of Waterloo, Public Health Department and it consists of approximately $30,000 per year. This amount covers less than 20\% of their expenses and for the past 20 years, the balance of their budget has come from private donors including businesses and individuals. Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region is no longer able to sustain itself and despite relying mostly on volunteers and reducing staff hours to cut costs, will be closing if it does not secure more funds.

The loss of Planned Parenthood Waterloo Regionwill have a significant impact on the provision of sexual health services in Waterloo Region and will surely leave a gap in services for the most vulnerable members of the community particularly those with low-income, youth and women.

This petition is being brought forward by a group of concerned citizens, Wilfrid Laurier University graduate students, and past volunteers of Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region. We are calling for increased funding to be designated for Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region by the Region to assist in sustaining this vital community service.

Thank you for your consideration of this important request.
