Helping patients to achieve a successful pregnancy.

Fees

The Victoria Fertility Center offers two fee schedules: Our Standard Fee Schedule (below) and our "Premier Plan" 

If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident with a valid Provincial Medicare card , there is no charge for the first consultation. However, because British Columbia's Medical Services Plan ("MSP") does not pay for IVF or similar infertility treatment, you will have to pay yourself for some of the services we provide.

Please note: All fees listed are in Canadian dollars.
