While abortion remains legal in Canada, some abortion rights advocates say women continue to face hurdles in accessing the procedure.

Funding, distance to medical facilities and a patchwork of provincial laws all mean an abortion is not as easy to obtain in Canada as some may think.

"People often conflate the two, thinking that because it's decriminalized it's very easy to access in our country — and it's not the case," said Frédérique Chabot, director of health promotion at Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights.
