1 in 6 Canadian adults needs access to fertility care

The average cost of fertility care exceeds most people’s means.

A single IVF cycle in Canada costs up to $20,000. Often, it takes several rounds of fertility treatment before patients successfully take home a baby. Currently, only seven provinces provide funding related to fertility and family-building care to residents, and the programs and access to services vary widely across the country.
