Be a donor. Talk with your family.

The Saskatchewan government is committed to modernizing our organ donation system and improving organ donation rates. If more people identify themselves as willing to be organ donors, we can help more people receive a transplant.
There are typically 60 people waiting for a kidney in Saskatchewan, but only enough donations for about 30 transplants each year. The need for other organs and tissues remains high, particularly for people who are hard to match with donors.
Learn more about organ and tissue donation and about organ and tissue transplantation.
One donor can save up to eight lives, and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of 75 people.
Register as a Donor
To indicate your intention to be an organ and/or tissue donor:
- Go to givelifesask.ca, provide some basic personal information to prove your identity, then register your decision to donate organs and/or tissues.
- Or fill in the paper form and submit it to eHealth Saskatchewan.
- Talk to your family about your decision, so they know to approve donation when the time comes.
Donation is only possible with the consent of next of kin.
