Infertility Awareness Week as a Mom

This is Canadian Infertility Awareness Week. I am the Executive Director of Fertility Matters Canada, the national fertility resource for Canadians. Every day I talk to patients who are struggling to build their families. Every day I try to support individuals with an infertility diagnosis. Every day I work to ensure patients have the information and supports they need to make informed choices about their reproductive health. Every day I advocate for equal access to fertility care in this country. And, every day I die a little inside because I may never be able to give my son something he wants.

Community Corner: Welcoming Families to the Capitol Theatre

When I was small, my grandmother would take me to Mount Allison’s Convocation Hall for ballet and theatre. I’d put on my frilliest dress, best barrettes, and try my hardest to contain the overwhelming and hyperactive excitement buzzing inside me. As much as I loved the performances, the memories of what I saw on stage are honestly fuzzy at best. The venue, however, I still remember vividly.
