Surrogacy in Canada: A Guide for Parents-to-be
Interest in surrogacy in Canada is consistently high among childless people around the world. This is largely due to the acquisition of Canadian citizenship by newborns and the non-commercial nature of surrogacy. People on a budget see this as an opportunity to save money on surrogate mother's fees.
However, this often turns out to be much more expensive than in countries where commercial surrogate motherhood is legal. In addition, there are several other legislative features that can greatly complicate the life of happy parents. We will tell you about all the features of surrogacy in Canada in this article.
Citizens of the country and foreigners in an official marriage and partnership, including same-sex couples, can become parents in Canada with the help of a surrogate mother. Non-commercial surrogacy is legally allowed in the country. The surrogate mother is only compensated for reasonable expenses related to pregnancy (transportation costs, medical services, food, clothes for pregnant women). All expenses are reimbursed in strict accordance with the cheques. If the surrogate mother is forced to leave work for medical reasons, the future parents will compensate her for the loss of wages, as well as the costs of medical services and medications.
If expectant parents need donor eggs, it will cost about 75 thousand Canadian dollars.
It is strongly discouraged to show sweeping gestures of gratitude to the surrogate mother in the form of gifts of any value. From a legal point of view, this is a violation of the altruistic principle of the service, which is punishable by a fine of 500 thousand Canadian dollars and / or 10 years in prison.
A child born in Canada receives a citizen's passport, which allows him to freely visit most of the countries of the world, insurance, and subsequently - a state educational loan for admission to a university. Certainly, these are significant bonuses.
But there is also an important feature: according to the laws of Canada, upon reaching the age of 18 years by the child, parents are required to inform him about the surrogate mother’s and / or oocyte donor’s participation in his birth.
Assisted reproductive services in Canada, which include examinations of prospective parents and surrogate mother, embryo transfer (IVF), pregnancy monitoring, delivery and postpartum care, will cost an average of 57,000 Canadian dollars. IVF cost - C$ 10,000-15,000, if additional treatment is needed, the price increases to C$ 20,000 per cycle. If pregnancy does not occur after the first embryo transfer, you will have to pay for each cycle again. After what transfer it will be possible to achieve pregnancy, it is impossible to predict, therefore, the total cost of the reproductive program may exceed C$ 100,000. At the same time, it is not allowed to choose the gender of your child, genetic testing of the embryo cannot be carried out to exclude hereditary diseases. A separate large expense item is childbirth in Canada. An already expensive service can become several thousand more expensive in case of a complicated course and the need for a cesarean section.
The services of lawyers in the process of registration of parental rights by biological parents will cost tens of thousands of Canadian dollars.
Thus, the benefits of non-commercial surrogacy in Canada are offset by the lack of guarantees of the result after one cycle, the high cost of each procedure and service, the need to disclose to the child the circumstances of his birth.
There is a way to become parents in Canada with a 100% probability at a fixed price, while the child will be absolutely healthy, receive a passport of this country and all the bonuses due to him, and after 18 years you will not need to talk about the participation of a surrogate mother in Canada in his birth. All these conditions are included in the package of services guaranteed by the Feskov Human Reproduction Group "Childbirth in Canada".
In a simplified form, the implementation of the program looks like this: you pay fixed amounts of the cost of each stage of the program and expect the result in the form of the birth of a healthy child, whom you can choose the gender. The health of the newborn is guaranteed through the use of the PGD method when creating embryos, which is not available if you use surrogacy services in clinics in Canada.
