The Victoria Fertility Centre (VFC) was established in 2003 - and we completed our first IVF cycle in that Spring, with our first baby born in January 2004. Since that time VFC has experienced significant growth, as a result of patients from across the country and all over the world attracted by our superior success rates and our personalized and holistic approach to patient care. VFC remains the only fertility clinic located on Vancouver Island.
Our offices have been custom designed to provide a comfortabe and inviting atmosphere for our patients. We have a sophisticated ventilation system equipped with high tech carbon filters to eliminate all possible external contaminants that could in any way damage our embryos. Our laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment so as to provide optimum control of the environment for handling our eggs and embryos.
We only use the highest quality products for sperm preparation, egg retrieval, and embryo culture all of which are approved for human use by government regulatory authorities.
Victoria, Our City
Victoria, the provincial capital of British Columbia, is a beautiful, friendly city located on Vancouver Island, just 2-1/2 hours by car & ferry from Vancouver. Victoria is easily accessible by direct flights from most centres in Western Canada or by ferries from either Tsawwassen or Horseshoe Bay terminals in Vancouver or from Anacortes or Port Angeles in Washington state (USA). For many, Victoria is a more comfortable, affordable, relaxing destination than larger cities such as Vancouver.
Victoria is a highly sought after destination and as such remains a comfortable and safe city to be in for patients away from home.
