Fertility challenges are hard — access to care shouldn’t be.
Conceivable Dreams is a grassroots advocacy organization supporting current and future families. We work to build awareness about fertility and reproductive health issues, and empower patients to address their fertility challenges head-on. We act as patient advocates for individuals and couples from the early steps of their journeys like fertility baseline testing all the way through to fertility treatments like IUI and IVF.
What we do
- Educate government, stakeholders, and patients to improve policies and procedures for people who want a family.
- Liaise with partner organizations across Canada to improve public funding.
- Improve employer benefits and expanding insurance coverage
- Build awareness to reduce the stigma associated with infertility
- Seek diverse and inclusive patient perspectives and experiences to guide our work.
The effects of infertility are far reaching. While you may not see these significant effects directly, that does not mean they are not making huge waves, creating rippling effects from mental and physical health to home, relationship, and work life. Supporting those experiencing infertility and those who require assisted fertility services is crucial for the health of our citizens and the overall well-being of our society.
We have always been reliant on our board and patient members who volunteer their time, services, and resources.
Our board is always looking to expand and allow for new talent. If you are interested in volunteering your time as a Conceivable Dreams board member, please fill in this form.
