Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Centre

About Us

  • The Pregnancy Centre is affiliated with Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services (CAPSS) and has been serving the Markham-Stouffville region since May 1991.
  • The Pregnancy Centre is comprised of board, staff and volunteers who have received training in crisis support. Everyone has a deep commitment and care for each individual and their needs. The support is not a substitute for professional counselling.
  • Our purpose is to provide clients with information on each option available to them that will enable them to make a well-informed and educated decision.
  • We recognize the importance of sharing your concerns with someone who cares and understands in a non-judgmental manner. We respect you for taking the time to search out your options in regard to this very important matter.
