It had been expected that Provincial Health Minister Eric Hoskins would announce details of the Province’s in-vitro fertilization plan today.
He now says that he has decided to wait a littler longer in order to hold more consultations.
Hoskins did however say that would-be parents who qualify, will be able to get funding for IVF before the end of this year.
It’s thought the consultations will look at whether the province will accept the recommendations of an expert panel that wants to exclude morbidly obese women and those over the age of 42 from funding, however Hoskins would not be drawn on this.
Ontario is set to become just the second province after Quebec to fund in-vitro fertilization for people unable to have children otherwise.
