Canada: a draft bill to remunerate surrogate mothers

Publié le : 2 June 2014

On Monday, in Canada, a federal independent MP, Dean Del Mastro, will propose a parliamentary initiative draft bill aimed at remunerating surrogate mothers and thus amending federal law in relation to medically assisted procreation.

 

In Canada, at the present time, surrogacy is not illegal but remuneration for surrogacy is forbidden. According to the Conservative MP, it is time “to put an end to this hypocrisy” since “Canada is well aware of the fact that remuneration is agreed outside the country,” explained the Lapresse.ca website.

 
Since the proposed legislation is a parliamentary draft bill as opposed to a governmental draft bill, it probably won’t appear on the agenda with immediate effect.
