In Canada, almost 90% of Canadians say they support organ donation, but only 32% have actually registered their intent to donate. Though donation rates have improved over the last ten years, there is more to be done as approximately 250 Canadians die annually waiting for an organ transplant.
Green Shirt Day takes place each year on April 7. It is a day to raise awareness of organ donation and register organ donors across Canada. Championed by the parents of Logan Boulet, a young hockey player on the Humboldt Broncos who became an organ donor after the terrible bus crash that took his and 15 other lives.
Humboldt Broncos Defenceman Logan Boulet helped 6 lives live on and inspired a Nation to register as organ & tissue donors.
We can all be an inspiration by registering as organ & tissue donors, and telling our family and friends. We are Together Strong!

Let’s continue to inspire one another by registering and telling our family.
