Lactation support is not funded by any level of Canadian government.  Your support helps us continue to offer the services for which it has become renowned – helping and supporting families to achieve their own breastfeeding goals.  It also helps us to provide free support and resources via our website to families and health care providers unable to visit us in person.


Individual donations represent the single largest source of support for ibc. Thank you!
