Thanks for your question.
HIV, STI, and PAP screening is free in BC, with the BC Carecard (aka MSP). If you have a BC Carecard you can go to your family doctor, or any walk-in clinic, to get free testing.
If you do not have an BC Carecard (for example, if are not a permanent resident, or if you don’t have MSP), then you can still get free testing at these STI clinics:
- Most Youth Clinics
If you live outside Vancouver, and need to find a free clinic, check out our Clinic Finder Tool.
Note: If you do not have a BC Carecard and try to get tested at a walk-in clinic, you could be charged around $200. So, it’s better to go to a free clinic!
Hope this helps!
