The AHR Act forbids the buying and selling of in vitro embryos in Canada.
Under section 5(1) and section 9 of the AHR Act, no person shall knowingly create a human clone by using any technique, or transplant a human clone into a human being or into any non-human life form or artificial device; and create an in vitro embryo for any purpose other than creating a human being or improving or providing instruction in assisted reproduction procedures.
Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) embryos and larvae are frequently used in toxicology, including short-term embryo-only tests which often use small volumes of test solution. The effect that such conditions may have on Fathead minnow development has yet to be explicitly described. Here we compared rates of embryonic development in Fathead minnow embryos reared under standard light and temperature conditions with a range of possible methods. All methods yielded excellent control survival.
Animal registrations of both male and female Dairy Cattle and Goats from Artificial Insemination Sires and Embryo Transfers.

Under section 6 of the AHR Act, no person shall pay, offer to pay or advertise that they will pay a woman to be a surrogate mother.
Based on current scientific understanding, the products of animals generated through cloning techniques that use embryonic cells, such as embryo splitting and embryonic cell nuclear transfer, are considered not to pose a food safety concern. There is generally no restriction on the marketing of either the animals produced using these techniques and their progeny, or the products or by-products of these animals, in Canada or elsewhere.
Health Canada is committed to verifying complaints from Canadians and industry regarding materials, activities or any matters which are subject to the Assisted Human Reproduction Act (the AHR Act) or its Regulations.
Donor sperm and ova (eggs) are sperm and ova that are intended for use in assisted human reproduction (AHR) by a recipient who is not the spouse, common-law partner or sexual partner of the donor.
Dataset contains laboratory-studied Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) survival when exposed to bitumen sediments from the oil sands region of northern Alberta, cut through the McMurray Formation (MF). These are the results of the toxicological exposures, when Fathead minnow embryos were exposed to water from simulated rainfall on the river sediments.
