The Youth Clinic is no longer its own independent program open on limited days of the week - Youth Clinic services are now integrated into the regular daily operations of our After Hours Clinic; our After Hours Clinic downtown welcomes youth patients with general health or sexual health related concerns on a walk-in basis.

#327 - 8600 Franklin Ave. Fort McMurray, AB. T9H 4G8 (The WBPCN After Hours Clinic downtown).
The Youth Clinic offers the youth of Fort McMurray a wide variety of services in a
safe, comfortable, and
confidential environment. Your conversations with our nurses and physicians will be held in the strictest of confidence.
Some of our services include:
We believe in the 3Rs, as described by the
Advocates for Youth organization:
We respect the self-determination of youth (the ability to make choices in alignment with one's own personal values and to live a life of one's own design). As a healthcare provider, we are neither pro-sex nor pro-abstinence, but
pro-health: we take a non-judgmental approach to the sensitive topic of teenage sexuality, and provide our services with the sole aim of keeping the youth of our community as safe and as healthy as possible.
The WBPCN Youth Clinic would not be possible without the support of a number of local organizations. We would especially like to recognize the
Local 488 United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, as they provided the generous donation through the
Northern Lights Health Foundation that made this program possible.
The Local 488 has grown and evolved with Northern Alberta for over a century. Today, Local 488 is the single largest supplier of pipe trades professionals in Canada. They are tireless advocates of social activism, and strive to provide the best for not only their workers, but the communities they operate in. The donation that made the TSHC possible is but one more in the Local 488's long history of supporting our vibrant community.
The staff of the WBPCN Youth Clinic are also available for public education sessions and inservices; public engagement and health promotion is one of our mandates, and it has been our privilege to work closely with many community organizations, schools, and youth groups over the years. For these inquiries, please call us at 780-714-2193
