Organ and Tissue Transplants and Donations

Saskatchewan is working to create a donor registry. If you support donation, please talk to your family and let them know your wishes.

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.

Becoming a Donor

To indicate your intention to be an organ and tissue donor: 

  1. Get an organ and tissue donor sticker and Intention to Donate form by calling eHealth Saskatchewan at 1-800-667-7551;
  2. Put the sticker on your Saskatchewan Health Card;
  3. Fill out an Intention to Donate form;
  4. Keep your card and the form in your wallet; and
  5. Most importantly, talk to your family and let them know you support donation.

Conversation with your loved ones is important, as donation is only possible with the consent of next of kin.
