Tissue & Organ Donation
Saskatchewan has launched an Organ and Tissue Donor Registry. Visit www.givelifesask.ca to register your decision. Organ donations save lives.
One organ donor can save up to eight lives and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of 75 people.
It's crucial you have this conversation with your family. 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.
Becoming a donor:
- Visit www.givelifesask.ca to register your decision.
- Talk to your family about your decision to be a donor, so they can support your wishes.
What you need to know:
The need for organs and tissue for transplants far outweighs the available supply. Becoming an organ or tissue donor is one way you can help alleviate this need, and it may be a decision that’s right for you.
There are two ways to donate: living donation and deceased donation. Before any choice is made, it's important to talk to your family about your decision to donate. For more information on living and deceased donation, read more about donation.
