Ottawa Fertility Law - Great Expectations

Fertility Law

Fertility LawIt is legal in Canada for you to donate eggs, sperm or embryos, and to receive eggs, sperm or embryos. It is also legal to be a surrogate or to use a surrogate to have a child. But it is illegal to pay for eggs, sperm or embryos, to pay someone to be a surrogate mother, to receive payment for eggs, sperm or embryos, or to receive payment for being a surrogate. Even so, you can still get paid for out-of-pocket expenses related to these procedures.

If you are planning on using Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) to create your family, most fertility clinics in Canada will expect to see a legal agreement that has been written by a fertility lawyer.

Whether you are an intended parent, a donor or a surrogate, at Great Expectations, we would be happy to meet with you to discuss your needs.
