Public Funding for IVF Treatments
We are excited to learn that the Quebec Government is about to table a new Law, that will provide some public funding for IVF treatments. At the moment we are waiting for details from the Government before we are able to start offering funded treatment. We do not anticipate public funding for IVF before 2021 and will update our website as soon as the funding changes are in place. For now, our usual fees remain but we do look forward to caring for you in the near future. Thank you for your interest and collaboration.
Following the recent government announcement of additional pandemic containment measures, we would like to assure you that, for now, activities will continue at the clinic. We learned a great deal from the first wave and have developed additional risk-reducing measures. These include telephone and in-person COVID-19 symptom-based screening, modification of our waiting areas, and increased sanitary measures. Click on the links below to read full safety measures in effect. We are committed to providing both you and our staff with a safe environment. Should you have any questions, please contact the Centre.
