Organ and Tissue Donation in Ontario, Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth, Ontario Accident Lawyers
Did you know…That in Ontario consent is needed for organ donation? In Ontario consent is needed in order for your organs to be donated upon death. In other areas it is typically the other way around that consent is implied and you register if you don’t want to donate your organs upon death.
A signed organ donor card is not enough, you need to register. The registration forms are on their website “The Gift of Live” as well.
The website states your donation can save up to 8 lives and improve as many as 75 lives. The website also recommends you make your intention of whether your want your organs donated or not known to your family beforehand.
What if it is in my will? The problem with your intention being written in your will is that your will is usually not read until a later date. It is very important you register if you want to donate your tissue and organs upon death. The form allows you to indicate what you don’t want to donate.
The choice of whether or not to donate organs is very personal and often times a very difficult decision for family members to make.
