News about Chain of Life and Organ and Tissue Donation

Did You Know...?

Just a little over 1% of the population dies under conditions that are favorable for organ donation.

Each year, about about 800 people await a transplantation in Quebec. Unfortunately, about 30 of them die because they don’t receive an organ in time.

The vast majority of countries will only proceed with a transplant upon receiving consent from the family. This is true in Spain, the country with the highest donor rates in the world.

Organ donation education, a key link in the chain of life.
