Ellen Embury Featured in Osgoode Professional Development Blog

February 28, 2022  

Carbert Waite LLP lawyer Ellen Embury was recently featured in a question and answer piece on York University’s Osgoode Professional Development’s blog. Joined by fellow Canadian fertility lawyer, Sarah R. Cohen, they discussed their backgrounds in this practice as well as this year’s program, Fertility Law: Critical and Emerging Issues.

 

Ellen was quoted discussing Canada’s leading record for safe and legal surrogacies:

 

“I am very proud of the fact that Canada is one of the few countries in the world that offers safe legal surrogacy, particularly in the same-sex community. There are large areas of the world where it is not safe for same-sex couples to have a baby, and it is safe in Canada. This is something that people should know about and celebrate, and this is the forum in which we talk about the protections that have been put in place for the Canadian healthcare system, practices amongst lawyers, and issues related to international surrogacy in Canada.”
