Resource Wednesday: Health and Wellness for Students

The RRC Polytech Students’ Association offers accessible menstrual care and safe sex products at absolutely no cost!

The Initiative

One in three Canadians who need tampons, pads, and/or condoms struggle to afford them. Menstrual care is a basic need, while condoms can prevent incurable infections and diseases. This initiative is to stop the stigma around these topics, and put an effort to decrease its financial burden.

Locations

RRC Polytech students can find free pads, tampons, condoms, female condoms, and lube in our two offices:

Notre Dame Campus — 2055 Notre Dame Ave. 
Room CM-20
Monday-Friday
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Exchange District Campus — 160 Princess St.
Room P-110
Monday-Friday
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, RRC Polytech only allows those who are fully vaccinated to be on-campus.
