Regulatory landscape for assisted reproduction and related research in Canada

Author: Ubaka Ogbogu, 02/08/11

A few weeks ago I blogged about the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision on the constitutional validity of several sections of the Assisted Human Reproduction Act, Canada’s assisted reproduction and embryo research legislation. I am currently preparing a paper for the Health Law Review looking at the impact of the decision on activities regulated by the Act. The paper includes a table based on the decision that tracks the current regulatory status of various regulated clinical and research activities. Click on the image below or follow this link for an advance preview of the table (note: printing and copying is disabled).
