One of the busiest fertility clinics in all of Canada, the Calgary Regional Fertility Program sees about 3,000 new couples each year and performs more than 1,000 cycles of IVF annually.
The only clinic that's busier is in Quebec, where the government provides partial coverage for the treatment.
Alberta couples must pay out of pocket for fertility treatments, which range from $350 for artificial insemination to upwards of $13,000 for IVF.
Although egg donation is permitted in Canada, it can only be done for altruistic purposes and donors can only be reimbursed for their expenses.
For many couples, securing an egg donor under these conditions isn't possible and the Calgary fertility clinic sent about 75 couples to the U.S. for treatment last year.
