Gestational Surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy is the term used when a surrogate mother carries a child conceived via in vitro fertilization or IVF. The IVF may combine the genetic material of intended parents, sperm of one partner with a donor egg, or the genetic mother’s eggs with donor sperm. The egg is fertilized in the lab and then transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus.

Gestational surrogacy is legal in Canada. What is illegal is paying the surrogate mother for carrying the child, just as the Assisted Human Reproduction Act prohibits paying for sperm or eggs.

Traditional Surrogacy

Traditional surrogacy occurs when the baby is genetically related to the surrogate, because the surrogate’s eggs are combined with the biological father’s sperm. Traditional surrogacy is legal in Canada, but it is not common. It sometimes takes place outside of a clinic setting, but it should always be considered after seeking professional legal advice.

Traditional surrogacy using a relative of one of the intended parents provides a genetic relationship between the parents and the child, though the same can be achieved by using a relative as the egg donor or sperm donor when creating the embryo for gestational surrogacy. However, the due diligence required when drafting the surrogacy agreement and paperwork required after the birth all the more important when using traditional surrogacy.
