Serving Australians

We are honoured to have the privilege to help so many Australia based patients overcome these obstacles by growing their family in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Please get in touch to find out why Anova Fertility is the premier destination in the country for aspiring parents who require egg donation and/or surrogacy to build their families.

  1. Our expense reimbursement system for donors and surrogates combined with our lower dollar exchange rate means this journey typically costs half of what it would in the US.
  2. Risky Australian surrogacy laws – based on Australia’s 2011 Surrogacy Act, Intended Parent(s) must apply for the parentage to be transferred to them from the surrogate. Until this legally takes effect, the child is legally considered the child of the surrogate, a transition period many parents-to-be are understandably uncomfortable with from a legal perspective.
  3. A lack of egg donors – Australia’s Prohibition of Human Cloning for Reproduction Act makes it illegal for donors to be paid and severely limits expense reimbursements, leading many Australian women choosing not to be egg donors.
  4. Long wait list for donor eggs – Due to there being so few donors in Australia, many aspiring parents wait for years to be matched with a donor, sometimes to no avail. In Canada, donors can be reimbursed for expenses without such extreme limitations, leading to a much larger donor pool for our patients.
