Become an organ and tissue donor today!

8/25/2014

Albertans with vision loss can wait as long as three years for sight-restoring surgery, including corneal transplants. You can help by becoming an organ and tissue donor.

There are two ways you can register:

  1. You can register online at https://myhealth.alberta.ca/Pages/OTDRHome.aspx.

  2. You can register at a registry agent office. Over 90% of registry agents in Alberta can help you register to be a donor.; All registry agents should have this ability by March 2015. More information is available at http://www.health.alberta.ca/services/organ-tissue-donor-registry.html.

Remember to discuss your wishes with your family and friends. They need to know you want to become a donor, and talking with them will help them respect your choice when the time comes.
