Where can I get an abortion in Toronto?

I took a pregnancy test and got the + instead of the - sign. I cannot emotionally, mentally, or financially take care of a child. My life plans do not involve children. I live one hour away from Toronto (accessible easily by bus). How do I get an abortion? How soon can I get it done? I am not telling anyone in my life about this, so any advice is greatly appreciated.
So far my plan is this: Call the Women's Care Clinic in Toronto tomorrow and set up an appointment. Snag: You have to be four weeks pregnant to get an abortion and I don't know how pregnant I am. How do I find out? Has anyone ever been to this clinic or another in Toronto and have any advice or reviews? I've only known about this for five minutes although I've been worrying about it for a week so I don't know if I am being very logical right now. I just want to cry.
Note: My understanding is that in Canada, abortion is covered by insurance and available on demand so I do not need a referral. Is this correct? This is not a situation I ever imagined myself in. I am freaking the fuck out.
I have never been pregnant before, I am young, I use birth control, and I am not in a relationship. Anything is appreciated. Throwaway email: firstname.lastname@example.org
