introduction with a few questions

i just joined a few similar communities, so my apologies if you see this posted a few times.

my wife and i are planning on starting TTC at the end of this year. we've been married for 1.5 years, and have been together for just over 5 years. she's 31 and i'm 27.

we've been thinking a lot about IVF, because she is adopted and is really interested in having something that is genetically related to her, but she has no interest in getting pregnant (additionally, pregnancy could be a bit of a risk for her, as she has a mild, non-genetic heart condition). i really want to experience pregnancy, but i don't really care if our baby has any genes from me. so, it seems like IVF would be perfect, except of course for all the costs and risks! we want to look at all our options at this point. when should we start meeting with a fertility clinic if we want to start ttc at the end of the year? unfortunately, our doctor's office, while they do have a fertility clinic, they cannot do anything but regular insemination. has anyone here tried IVF?

additionally, is anyone here from toronto or know of any good clinics in toronto (canada)

thanks in advance, i'm looking forward to participating in this community!
