Surrogacy Creates Loving Families

Becoming a surrogate in Canada is an extraordinary journey that allows you to help create families and bring joy to those who cannot have children on their own. Surrogacy is a selfless act of love and generosity, providing a priceless gift to individuals and couples who dream of having a child.

What is a Surrogate?

A surrogate—also known as a gestation carrier—carries and delivers a child for a someone else. This path to parenthood is crucial for many people, including those facing infertility, same-sex couples, and single individuals longing to become parents. Surrogates make the seemingly impossible possible, turning dreams into reality and changing lives forever.

In Canada, surrogates do not receive payment for their services due to the altruistic nature of the Canada’s surrogacy laws governed by the Assisted Human Reproduction Act. This legislation strictly prohibits commercial surrogacy in Canada, restricting compensation solely to reimbursement for expenses directly related to the surrogacy process. This legal framework aims to make surrogacy as a selfless act of compassion and generosity, where surrogates are motivated by the profound desire to help others create families rather than financial incentives. Emphasizing altruism fosters a supportive environment between surrogates and intended parents, enriching the deeply meaningful journey of surrogacy in Canada.

We support surrogate mothers across all Canadian provinces, including surrogates in Alberta, surrogates in British Columbia, surrogates in Manitoba, surrogates in New Brunswick, surrogates in Newfoundland and Labrador, surrogates in Nova Scotia, surrogates in Ontario, surrogates in Prince Edward Island, surrogates in Quebec, and surrogates in Saskatchewan.
