Organ Donation in British Columbia

One organ donor can save up to eight lives and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of 75 people.

Your family makes the final decision on whether to donate your organs and tissues. Discussing your wishes with your family is more important than registering. If your family members are aware of your decision to donate, they are much more likely to know how to respond if faced with this difficult decision.

Talk to your family about your wishes.
Register now to be an organ donor. Heroes aren’t made – they’re registered!
