Organs and Tissues

Canadian Blood Services works with the organ and tissue donation and transplantation community to improve the system in Canada. Through national collaboration involving organ donation organizations and transplantation programs across the country we are working to increase organ and tissue donation, increase access to transplants and improve patient outcomes. This website provides valuable information and data related to interprovincial organ sharing programs and services, professional education learning opportunities, including the Canadian Clinical Guide to Organ Donation, numerous peer-reviewed publications, data and progress reports; as well as leading practices and clinical guidelines, clinical tools and other resources.

This national organ donation and transplantation COVID-19 impact dashboard was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is intended to help the community better understand, in near real time, the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had, either directly or indirectly on organ donation and transplantation practices in Canada and by extension, what impact these changes have had on potential donors and transplant candidates.
The Canadian Clinical Guide to Organ Donation is an organ donation curriculum for health professionals that enhances competencies in the identification and care of potential deceased donors and their families. The Canadian Clinical Guide to Organ Donation is a free self-directed, interactive, online e-learning course featuring case scenarios.
This interactive online platform reports national performance data for organ donation and transplantation in Canada. The dashboard consists of nine primary sections presenting data on key aspects of the donation and transplantation across the system.
