The Infertility Awareness Association of Canada (IAAC) provides assistance to Canadians who are experiencing difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy. For these people, the inability to conceive a child may be the most profound medical and emotional challenge they ever face. 


Programs & Services

IAAC Support Groups: IAAC support groups across Canada are led by Chapter Leaders who have personally experienced the heartache of infertility.

Information on IVF Clinics: these clinics will provide information on the factors that are important when trying to conceive and show you how to maximize your chances of success. A doctor will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the available treatment options with you.

Information on Alternative Medicine: many fertility patients have found it helpful to seek complementary and alternative medicine treatments. These include a broad and diverse range of health care theories, practices and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine.

Information on Counselling: counselling interventions can improve patients overall quality of life, as well as their response to the treatment process. IAAC highly recommends counselling before, during and after assisted reproduction treatment.
