It is very important to talk to your family about your decision to donate.
Sharing this decision with your family makes it possible for your loved ones to honour your wishes after you have died. It's a discussion that could save lives. To learn more, contact the
Saskatchewan Transplant Program.
If you feel you would like to recognize the anniversary of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy by giving blood, please contact Canadian Blood Services at 1-800-2-DONATE or 1800-236-6283) or visit their website here.
Donating blood saves lives and improves health.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
Green Shirt Day is coming April 7th (and for schools and
workplaces on April 8th), to encourage people to decide to be organ and tissue donors and talk with their family. The Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Health Authority invite you to play an active role in this event, so more people can receive life-saving or life-altering transplants. The issue of organ and tissue donation was dramatically highlighted last April when it became known that Logan Boulet, who lost his life as a result of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy, had made the decision to be an organ donor and told his family he intended to be a donor shortly before the accident. There is growing momentum about organ and tissue donation. Our health system is improving organ and tissue donation and transplant processes and is working together with partner organizations to encourage more people to decide to be donors, talk to their families about it and put Organ Donor stickers on their health cards. Government will soon begin development of an online donor registry to simplify the process. GREEN SHIRT DAY - Sunday April 7th (schools/ other workplaces on April 8th) Green Shirt Day is April 7th, the anniversary of the day Logan Boulet’s family saved six lives by agreeing to donate his organs. People across Canada are invited to wear a green shirt on that day, to honour The Logan Boulet Effect, which saw more than 100,000 Canadians register as organ donors in the days after the young hockey player’s donation became widely known.
