Donor registration is confidential and will not impact one’s medical care. Registration status is only accessed at end-of-life to share a person’s donation wishes with their family.
Donor registration gives families clear evidence of their loved one’s donation decision. It relieves families of the burden of making a donation decision on their loved one’s behalf at a difficult time.
Anyone aged 16 or older can register. People of all ages and medical histories should consider themselves potential donors.
One can easily change or withdraw their donor registration at any time.
Even if a person has signed a donor card, they still need to register by clicking Register or by visiting a ServiceOntario centre. Donor cards are no longer used in Ontario.
Donation in Ontario is managed by Trillium Gift of Life Network, a not-for-profit agency of the Ontario government.
Bring hope to those who are waiting for a life-saving transplant and register now.
