About Our Charity

Fertility Matters Canada (FMC) is the leading national patient-focused organization providing free support, public education, and advocacy for equitable access to fertility care in Canada. Whether you are considering your future fertility, are currently on a fertility journey, are facing childlessness after infertility, have experienced a miscarriage or loss, or are seeking support or information, FMC is here to help you.

We grew out of a volunteer group in Ottawa called the Infertility Self Support Group (ISSG), which began in 1983. Today, FMC is a national charitable organization supporting more than 1 in 6 Canadians who are struggling with their fertility or who need access to fertility care to build their family.

In 2007, FMC launched Canadian Infertility Awareness Week (CIAW) to raise awareness and hope in the fertility community. In 2023, CIAW became Canadian Fertility Awareness Week (CFAW), a more inclusive campaign raising awareness of the struggles and stories of all those needing access to fertility care.
