Organ & Tissue Donation

The need for organs and tissue for transplants is great. Demand exceeds supply and you can help. You can make a living donation or a donation after death.

One organ can save up to 8 lives. One tissue donor can improve the lives of more than 75 people.  Currently 90 people are waiting for a kidney transplant in Sask. Almost 70 people are waiting for a corneal transplant in Saskatchewan.

The oldest person to be an organ donor (kidney) in Canada was 93 YEARS OLD! Age doesn’t matter!!!

In 2015, there were 10 multi-organs and 45 corneal donors in Saskatchewan. One third of all Canadians who need a transplant will never receive one.

Note: In Saskatchewan, organ & tissue will NOT be donated without your family or next-of-kin’s consent, even if the organ and tissue donor sticker is on your health card. Talk to your family about your decision to donate.
