Overview

What is a registration drive?

It’s the way we’re asking Ontarians to help spread the word about the importance of registering consent for organ and tissue donation. People are more likely to register if those close to them have registered and have asked them to do the same.

An online registration drive can be started by a person or an organization (i.e. a Company or Community Group). You’ll be setting up a page in which you can state why organ and tissue donation is important to you. Once you’ve set up a page, you can share it to encourage your friends, family members and colleagues to register.

Though most Ontarians believe that organ and tissue donation is a good thing, only about a quarter of us are actually registered. Some communities in Ontario have a registration rate of around 10%. That’s why we need your help to encourage those you know to register.

How do I get involved?

Individual Drives:

First, you'll have to create a user profile and then you can create a page for your registration drive. There, your friends and family can read why you think organ and tissue donation is important and click to register their own consent. It's easy to create your own page. If you need help, check out the below tools and resources.
