Period equity

Free. Period.

A period equity pilot project.

Periods are a part of life.

This September, The City, in partnership with the Calgary Public Library and Youth Central's Mayor’s Youth Council, are launching the Free. Period. pilot project.

Through this pilot free pads and tampons will be available in select City and Library facilities.

Improved access to period products


Not having access to period products can affect the participation, concentration, confidence, and performance of menstruating Calgarians in the classroom, in the workplace and in everyday life. 

Period poverty affects everyone including families and friends of menstruators, non-binary, and trans folks. That’s why we have free period products in some men’s washrooms.  

If you or someone you know needs a pad or tampon, we have you covered at the following locations: 

The Free. Period. pilot program aligns the Gender Equity, Diversity and Inclusion StrategySocial Wellbeing PolicyEnough for All Poverty Reduction Strategy and Resilient Calgary Strategy.
