CCQ-1991 - Civil Code of Québec

Full text
541.3. The contribution made to the parental project by the woman or the person who has agreed to give birth to a child must be gratuitous. However, the woman or person is entitled to the reimbursement of expenses and to compensation, where applicable, for loss of work income as allowed by the Reimbursement Related to Assisted Human Reproduction Regulations (SOR/2019-193) adopted under the Assisted Human Reproduction Act (S.C. 2004, c. 2). If domiciled outside Québec, the woman or person is also entitled to reimbursement or payment of certain expenses and to compensation for loss of work income provided for by the law of the State of their domicile.
The person alone or the spouses who formed the parental project may not claim reimbursement of the amounts they paid under the first paragraph for the sole reason that the project was not carried to completion.
