Registration: Key Facts

  • 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 over the age of 16 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.
