Therapeutic Abortion Summary

The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHTLC) provide a summary of therapeutic abortions through IntelliHealth Ontario. IntelliHealth Ontario is a data warehouse that contains clinical and administrative data from various sectors of the Ontario healthcare system. Therapeutic abortions performed in hospitals, free-standing abortion clinics and private physician offices are included in the summary. Data are based on the client’s residence, not where the procedure was performed. The summary does not include Therapeutic abortions performed out-of-province, which may include a large number of abortions, particularly those over 20 weeks gestation.
