Quebec organ donor statistics have been published during awareness week:
- Approximately 3 million inhabitants of Quebec have chosen to donate their organs and have signed up to the Quebec Organ Donor Registry.
- 1.6 million people have given their consent by signing the register of the Chambre des notaires du Québec (Quebec Chamber of Notaries).
Four out of ten people in Quebec recorded their official consent for organ and tissue donation in one of the two registers available to them. The figures are deemed insufficient: Transplant Quebec is urging the citizens of Quebec to confirm their decision in writing and to inform their families without delay.
