Public Education & Awareness


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.

Intent to donate

Each province manages its own system to record organ and tissue donor intent to donate. Developed in collaboration with provincial partners a national platform provides Canadians with a single portal to navigate to the organ donor registry in their province.
