On-Demand Surrogate Reform Training

The Surrogate Rules, Alta Reg 130/1995, were recently amended to replace the existing NC forms with new GA forms and to permit electronic applications using a Surrogate Digital Service. Those amendments come into force on June 15, 2022 (see Order in Council 356/2021). Effective June 15, 2022, most surrogate applications must use the new GA forms and NC forms will no longer be accepted. LESA is pleased to offer 3+ hours of online training on the changes.

Surrogate Reform (originally broadcasted live as a webinar on June 17, 2022) is now available on demand.
