Not in force
541.31. The parental project may be carried out only if the woman or the person who has agreed to give birth to the child is domiciled in a foreign State designated by the Government.
The Government may only designate a foreign State where the rules and practices relating to surrogacy are not contrary to public order and respect the interest of the child once born, including the child’s safety and integrity, as well as the safety and integrity of the other persons involved in a surrogacy project. The Government may also take into account any other criteria it considers appropriate.
Such a designation is made on the joint recommendation of the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Health and Social Services as well as, as the case may be, the Minister of International Relations or the Minister responsible for Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs.
