Ontario has appointed an expert panel on fertility treatment and adoption to help find solutions for people who are trying to start or expand a family.
The panel will recommend ways to help make both fertility treatment and adoption more accessible and affordable.
The 12-member panel will provide advice to the government on:
- Improving access to infertility treatment and making fertility monitoring available to women so they know if they are likely to have problems conceiving a child.
- Improving Ontario’s adoption system so that more children can become part of families more quickly.
Panel members include adoptive parents, people who have had personal experience with infertility, and representatives from the medical and adoption communities. The panel is expected to report back to the Minister of Children and Youth Services with its recommendations within a year.
