Seminar in Sydney on Canadian Surrogacy- March

On 16 March there will be a free seminar in Sydney about surrogacy in Canada. The speakers will be Canadian surrogacy lawyer Nicolle Kopping-Pavars and me.

For those from Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT, surrogacy  in Canada is a legal option- because it is altruistic, not commercial (unlike the US).

Nicolle will be able to explain about how surrogacy in Canada works, and I will be able to talk about the Canadian option, as well as other options to have children by surrogacy, including doing it here.

I will blog more details about the seminar when they are to hand.
