How to register to be an organ donor in Canada and the United States

Transplantable organs are in extremely short supply in both Canada and the United States. One reason is the relatively few people who take the few minutes it takes to become a registered donor. Each year several thousand people die in North America while waiting for a transplant. We can significantly reduce that number by encouraging more registrations.

Organ donor registries operate in every province and state. The links below will take you to pages that will direct you to your area registry.
