Why Choose IVF Canada

In 1983, a group of gynecologists at Toronto East General Hospital established the LIFE Program, Canada’s first program for the treatment of infertility via in vitro fertilization (IVF). The success of the team led to a marked increase in demand, not only in Ontario but across Canada and internationally. To meet the growing demand, and to shorten the length of time couples had to wait for treatment, this group established IVF Canada in 1988, a private clinic for in vitro fertilization.

Over the past 30 years, IVF Canada has achieved some of the most important Canadian ‘firsts’ in in vitro fertilization:

  • 1st IVF pregnancy
  • 1st IVF twins and other multiples
  • 1st baby born from a frozen embryo
  • 1st baby born from donor ova (egg)
  • 1st pregnancy and birth through ICSI (micromanipulation)
  • 1st gestational surrogacy pregnancy and birth
  • 1st pregnancy and birth through pre-implantation genetic diagnosis
  • 1st pregnancy and birth through embryo culturing to blastocyst stage
