About Us

Life is messy. 

It doesn’t matter whether you wear a business suit or faded jeans; all of us experience challenges of one kind or another. 

Unplanned pregnancy can be one of those challenges. 

In Canada, almost 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned.

 At Barrie Pregnancy Resource Centre we know that sometimes unplanned pregnancy feels overwhelming. We know that having a safe place to talk can make all the difference.


Barrie Pregnancy Resource Centre opened in December 2006 to provide support and assistance to anyone facing unplanned pregnancy or pregnancy related difficulty. BPRC is a non-profit, charitable organization, supported by individuals, businesses and churches in our community.

BPRC is a Christian organization. We are absolutely convinced that there is a God … and that people matter to God. Your life is so precious to Him. You might never have thought about God or why you exist. But sometimes facing a difficult situation causes people to think about spiritual questions. If you would like to find out more about God’s care for your life and situation, we are always happy to share. Please know that although we are happy to talk about spiritual matters, there is no pressure or expectation to do so. Our focus is caring for you.

Providing support to anyone facing unplanned pregnancy or pregnancy related difficulty



All services are free and confidential.

The centre provides peer-based support. We are not a medical clinic and do not offer medical services, counsel or advice.

Although we provide support to women considering adoption, we are not an adoption agency and do not facilitate adoption.

Although we provide lab-quality urine pregnancy tests, all pregnancies should be confirmed by a doctor.

We do not provide or refer for abortion.
