The need for organ donors in Ontario

Currently, almost 1,600 people in Ontario are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. And though most of us believe that organ donation is a good thing, just over a quarter of us are registered as donors. Some great strides have been made in Ontario over the past year, but still more needs to be done. You can Spread the Word by encouraging your friends and family to register their consent to become organ and tissue donors.

31%

of Ontarians are registered donors. That’s 3.8 million out of an eligible 12.1 million.
