Albertans will soon be asked if they wish to register to be an organ and tissue donor when renewing their driver's licence - part of ongoing work to establish a single provincial agency to co-ordinate organ and tissue donations in Alberta.
Organ and tissue donor rates have dropped by nearly 40 percent over the past decade in Alberta .
“Becoming an organ and tissue donor is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Every individual who consents to donate may save up to eight lives and improve the quality of life for up to 75 more, and that’s why we’ve worked with registry agents to ensure Albertans will have the opportunity to register as a donor at registry agents across the province.”
- Fred Horne, Minister of Health
RE/MAX of Western Canada is proud to support organ donor awareness and encourages all Canadians to consider organ donation and to learn how to register in their province. http://www.liveon.ca/
