PricewaterhouseCoopers Canada to enhances employee fertility benefits

PricewaterhouseCoopers in Canada will offer its employees enhanced benefits for fertility

The company will support employees with packages for fertility drugs, lab services, and other surrogate medical expenses, prenatal fitness classes, vitamins, and other expenses related to surrogate wellness, as well as agency fees and other expenses related to the adoption process, according to benefitscanada.com.

The news benefits are being offered through Sun Life Financial Inc which already supports PwC with its recently created surrogacy benefits as part of its family benefits pilot programme.

Employees are said to have responded positively to the expansion, with several workers already believed to be taking advantage of the scheme.

Benefits, pensions, and well-being leader, Lisa Rosen, said: “It’s very expensive to use a surrogate and can be a stressful process, so having access to the benefits and that financial support can be the difference between families either starting a family or, in some cases, welcoming a second child.

“People want to work at a company where their values align. Even if someone doesn’t personally need assistance to have a family, their colleague across the room might, and I think people want to work for an organisation where they can look around and feel like everyone has the same opportunity.”
