Supplementary notes

Induced abortion is defined as the medical termination of pregnancy. Equivalent terms include artificial abortion, therapeutic abortion, voluntary termination of pregnancy, elective termination of pregnancy and active termination of pregnancy.

In recent years, medical abortions have become more accessible in primary care settings (e.g., nurse practitioner and physician offices, community and public health clinics), and most of these are not included in the data tables. Therefore, volumes reported underestimate the true number of induced abortions in Canada.

Detailed age breakdowns are not available from Ontario clinics for patients younger than age 25. Data for the affected age categories is presented in the age group "unknown (≤24)" for the Ontario row. For the pan-Canadian Total reported row, Ontario clinic cases for patients younger than 25 are included in the "unknown" category.
