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.”

Sales improve as consumers have more choice
City-wide price gains and better weather support year-over-year gains in new listings

"Strong sales activity is a reflection of improving fundamental conditions such as a growing population, favourable lending rates and rising wages," says CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie. "Leading up to May, resale market sales were somewhat restricted by lack of choice. However, recent price gains have encouraged growth in new listings, helping meet some of the housing demand."

New residential listings in April totaled 3,754 units, an eight per cent increase over the previous year. Meanwhile sales activity totaled 2,545 units for the month, a seven per cent increase over April 2013.
