How to become an organ donor

You can become an organ and tissue donor by signing a registration card and talking to your loved ones. It's critical to share your decision with your family as they will be asked for final consent to donate your organs after your death. Discuss your intentions with them so they can understand, support and respect your wishes in the future.

Is there nothing else I can do? Carrying a card seems so informal.

If you'd like to formalize your commitment to donate organs and tissue, you can register your intentions through the Yukon organ donor registry. Information is held in a central information bank in Whitehorse and your Yukon Health Care Insurance card will list you as a donor.
