The answer is yes, gestational surrogacy is legal in Canada. The Assisted Human Reproduction Act or AHRA, allows for women to become altruistic, gestational surrogates to help people become parents, but does not allow for these women to be compensated directly for their surrogacy. However, the law does allow these extraordinary women to be reimbursed for their pregnancy related expenses such as maternity clothing, food, medications, travel related expenses and more. As a Canadian citizen, all obstetrical and delivery costs will be covered by the surrogate mother’s health insurance (your health card). Any health related costs for the baby born will be covered by the Intending parents. Your team of coordinators will ensure you are supported through the process of requesting reimbursements of up to $2,500 CAD per month and that you fully understand what you are entitled to be reimbursed.
