Canadian Infertility Awareness Week – April 18 – 24, 2021

Mount Sinai Fertility recognizes Canadian Infertility Awarenesss Week (CIAW) April 18-24th.

We know that many people experience infertility and that this impacts their lives every day of the year.  Infertility doesn’t discriminate and affects people of across all races, religions, sexuality, and economic backgrounds. This year, COVID has added delays to fertility assessment and treatment for many as clinics were closed in the spring and faced a back-log once reopening. In addition, the financial strains of COVID has impacted the ability for many people to access treatment. Mount Sinai Fertility supports increasing awareness the impact of infertility, reducing the stigmas and barriers around infertility and improving access to fertility care for all Canadians.
