1. Is my wallet card good enough to be considered a donor?
No, you may even lose your wallet or the card; you need to register with a provincial agency if they have a registration. You should also tell you family and friends of your wishes. By telling your friends, you are allowing them to support your family when the time comes and the support is most important. We lose a lot of organ donors due to lack of communication and support. You may also sign an End of Life Wishes form available to download right on this page.
2. Can anyone become an organ donor?
Yes, please register to become an organ donor, when the time comes to decide about your organs and tissue a qualified transplant team will make the decision. Also keep in mind, the ever changing technology in transplant medicine and we are not always aware of the miracles the doctors can perform.
3. If I register to be an organ donor do they take my organs now?
No, by registering to be an organ donor you are agreeing to share your organs and tissue when you no longer need them.
