With Family Day coming up in Ontario, people are making plans on how to spend the day with their kids. Some are heading outdoors to spend the day sledding and skiing, while others head to the movies, and even others enjoy a quiet day at home. But for all of the families dealing with infertility, it is just another day off work. The Ontario Government gave us Family Day, and they can also help couples dealing with infertility by funding IVF in the province.
The World Health Organization has defined the right to have children as a basic human right and a health issue.
All provinces in Canada accept infertility as a medical disorder, and therefore the diagnostic investigation and
many aspects of the medical and surgical treatment of infertility are in fact covered by the different provincial
insurance plans. So why is in vitro fertilization (IVF) not included? In most provinces IVF was simply never
added as an insured service.
