Did you know that only 20% of Ontarians have registered their consent to be an organ and tissue donor?
If you are interested in donating, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care
has created an online registry where individuals can register their consent to donate their organs and tissues upon their death.
When you register your consent online, information about your donation decision will be available and accessible should it ever be required as its recorded in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database. In the event of your death, your donation decision will be disclosed for the purpose of sharing this information with your family so that they can honor your wishes.
To register you must be 16 years of age or older and have a valid Ontario Health Number.
