We work with the organ and tissue donation and transplantation community to improve the system for all Canadians. Through national collaboration involving organ donation organizations and transplantation programs across Canada we are working to increase organ and tissue donation, increase access to transplants and improve patient outcomes. We work collaboratively on events such as Green Shirt Day and National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week and other initiatives to honour donors and raise awareness for organ and tissue donation.
