Saanich Peninsula Youth Health Clinic

Due to COVID-19 the Youth Clinic is operating via telehealth. Youth are still able to connect and schedule appointments with CYMH counsellors each Thursday evening, and our physicians are available for booked appointments and walk-in telehealth as well.

In the coming weeks and months as Shoreline gradually reopens, we may be expanding in person visits. Updates will be posted here.

We thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.




2A - 2379 Bevan Avenue, Sidney, BC

Thursdays 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


Why is the Youth Clinic important?

We are the ONLY youth health clinic available on the Saanich Peninsula. Our clinic offers a safe place where you can find confidential help for any medical concern - physical, mental and sexual health. Speak to a counsellor, access STI and pregnancy testing, get prescriptions and access to birth control at cost, condoms and other free medical supplies. We work to make our youth clinic a LGBT2Q+ space–any gender, orientation and identities welcome! At each clinic a First Nation’s Elder is present to promote a respectful, welcoming environment for all youth.

Our clinic acknowledges that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the WSÁNEĆ peoples
