National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week is a Canadian celebration of those who have selflessly registered as donors to help save lives. This week also strives to raise awareness about the need for donors throughout Canada by encouraging citizens to register as donors. Unfortunately, the registration rates for donors in Canada remain some of the worst among all developing countries. While 90 percent of Canadians say they approve of donations, only 32 percent have actually registered to become donors to help the more than 4,400 Canadians on waiting lists for lifesaving organ and tissue transplants.

This special week began in February 1997; however, the official week now usually kicks off in the last week of April. This week was chosen to commemorate the death of Stuart Herriet, who was only a toddler when he was killed in a tragic automobile accident. Herriet’s parents donated the young boy’s organs and tissue. As a result, four people had their lives saved and vastly improved.
