MHB Canada goes virtual with the advanced REMO platform, showcasing Canadian surrogacy options!

For gay men who want to become parents through surrogacy, the MHB educational programs offer a wealth of information, advice and access to a wide range of relevant service providers — and from an unbiased non-profit organization.

While public health concerns prevent us from holding an in-person event in Toronto this fall, MHB is utilizing new technology to offer a 1/2 day Virtual Seminar & Expo. While current technology cannot fully recreate the immersive nature of our comprehensive two-day conferences, the new format goes far beyond conventional "webinars." We researched several options and chose a specialized platform (Remo) that allows for general presentations, breakout sessions, virtual expo "tables" and online consultation rooms. Please see the detailed program (coming soon) with general information on how Remo works and an in-depth guide to the platform.

The event will offer an overview of the unique characteristics of Canada as a surrogacy destination, and attendees from around the world will have an opportunity to get to know, evaluate and connect with regional surrogacy agencies, IVF clinics, law firms and additional providers.

Note: while the event is organized by gay parenting organizations, non-gay prospective surrogacy parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from it as well.
