When we receive our driver’s licence, often motorists will fill out their organ donor consent form and just put it back in their wallet.
People are in need of your tissue and organs. Over 100 people died in Ontario last year, awaiting an organ transplant.
Currently, there is a waiting list, where there are in excess of 1,500 Ontarians patiently, but in some cases desperately, waiting for organ and tissue donations.
This year alone, there have already been 399 transplants conducted.
The Gift of Life Network and the Government of Ontario through a five (5) year joint effort, were able to create http://beadonor.ca.
How Can Consent to Become an Organ or Tissue Donor Online?
Register your consent to become a donor with ServiceOntario and as the site states “One Click can Save Eight Lives” and improve another seventy-five (75) lives through your tissue donation.
If you don’t trust the government’s online services (as several of them have been hacked) then you can still fill out the hardcopy Organ Donor Consent registration form and mail it first class to Service Ontario, P.O. Box 48, Kingston, Ontario K7L 5J3.
