Over 90% of Canadians support organ donation, yet less than 30% actively register their consent to donate;
Canada has 15 donors per 1 million residents, compared to Spain at 33 and the United States at 26;
278 people died waiting for organ transplant surgery in Canada in 2014; and
Over 4,500 people are currently on the organ transplant waiting list.
We, the undersigned, Residents and citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to convene an expert task force or special committee to examine the legislative, educational and organizational practices of other other countries on organ donation and donor registration. This task force or committee will provide a report on findings with recommendations to the Government of Canada with the purpose of increasing organ donation awareness and donor registration across the country.
