Canadian Blood Services (CBS) has sought to understand the opinions of Canadians relating to organ and tissue donation and transplantation via various public opinion surveys conducted between 2001 and the present day. The most recent survey was conducted in 2022 among the General Public.
In 2021, Canadian Blood Services conducted an awareness and approval survey of ethnoculturally diverse populations in Canada to understand associated awareness and perceptions of both living and deceased organ and tissue donation.
The data collected through public opinion surveys helps to inform public education and awareness strategies and system improvements. Polling data is disseminated through the Public Education and Awareness Committee.
