How?

  • Register as a donor which can be done two ways: when you receive or renew your driver's license or fill an organ donor registration form online.
  • Consider being a live donor which means you donate organs that your body doesn't use and you can register to do this visiting the Transplant Program website where you will fill out a questionnaire.

Who?

  • Anyone who is physical healthy can donate their organs
  • If you are under 18 you must get consent from your parents or guardians

Why?

By donating your organs, you will be saving another person's life. You will be putting your own organs to good use.
