Reproductive Surrogacy in Canada

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Introduction: To understand the story of surrogacy regulation in Canada, one must go back a quarter of a century to the appointment of the Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies (Royal Commission). In keeping with international practice, Canada’s strategy was to undertake a thorough study of assisted reproduction, including surrogacy – its practice, its effects, and the attitudes and fears it provokes – before settling on a regulatory approach. To that end, the Royal Commission was appointed in 1989 with a mandate to explore the social, ethical, legal, and economic implications of new reproductive technologies and to recommend a suitable sociolegal response.
