Canadian Provinces Better Off without Federal Oversight of Fertility Treatments, Study Says
On the heels of news that the federal government plans to eliminate the only agency that governs fertility treatments, a new study from the University of Calgary suggests the provinces might be better off without the federal oversight. Critics fear the regulatory differences between provinces will prompt those desperate to conceive to cross provincial borders, seeking care in jurisdictions with laxer laws — a practice dubbed "fertility tourism." But those fears are misplaced, say the researchers behind a new study from the U of C's school of public policy.
