There is an ultrasound clinic in Gatineau that might be able to do some ultrasounds for you, but they are not specialised in fertility monitoring, so there are a few risks with using a non-specialised service-provider. Also, none of the fertility treatment you receive outside of a Quebec fertility clinic is covered by RAMQ. This means that if you went to a Gatineau ultrasound clinic, you would have to pay the full fee for all ultrasounds and RAMQ would not reimburse you. That can get very expensive.
Blood work can be done at most Dynacare clinics in Gatineau, but you won't get quick test results communicated to your clinic because most of these tests don't get analyzed on site at the blood draw centre. For many blood tests, you need the results communicated right away, so not the best option.
The Ottawa Fertility Clinic (OFC) sometimes does monitoring for patients who are having ivf elsewhere. Of course, there are fees that go with that - the majority of which are not reimbursed by ramq. That being said, OFC offers excellent timely specialized services, so they are worth the $$$ to reduce the stress from all the travel and time off work.
What you might actually have a harder time with is getting the Montreal clinic to agree to work with another clinic for monitoring. We contacted three Montreal clinics and none of them would allow us to be monitored elsewhere. That was in 2013, so things may have changed since then.
Hope this helps et bonne chance!
