A Toronto man’s journey to fatherhood via surrogacy in Kenya has drawn attention to the diverse ways in which people may choose to have children.
However it was also a reminder that the rules and costs around assisted reproduction may not be well known.
Here’s a look at the ins and outs of surrogacy and in vitro fertilization in Canada.
In vitro fertilization (IVF)
In Canada, IVF treatments cost about $10,000 to $15,000 per cycle on average. In some cases, the cost of fertility drugs and other tests and consultations can push that cost up to around $20,000.
Four provinces currently provide financial assistance for in vitro fertilization.
