Whether you decide to donate a kidney or not, we would like you to know some facts about donating organs and tissues. For any type of organ donation, Alberta has the
Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Registry on MyHealth.Alberta.ca.
This website lets people register to become a donor, and gives information about becoming a donor and the donation process. Talk about organ donation with your family and friends. The more people who join the provincial registry, the more organ donations will happen in Alberta. National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week is in April each year. Watch for local events, and we encourage you to support donation awareness within your community.
You can join the registry in 3 ways:
- Go to the Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Registry page on MyHealth.Alberta.ca.
- Say “Yes” when getting, or renewing, your driver’s licence.
- Sign the back of your healthcare card.
