I Live In Ontario, Canada And Would Like To Become An Organ Donor. How?!?

Postby Carey » Fri Sep 01, 2017 2:23 pm

In the old licenses of 10 years ago on the paper portion you can checkoff and sign whether or not you want to be an organ donor.
The new licenses are just a card with no reference to organ donation.
How do I go about establishing my wishes to be a donor.
Is it more then just telling family members that you want to be one? You never know if you are travelling and get sideswiped by a drunk.

Thanx!

I Live In Ontario, Canada And Would Like To Become An Organ Donor. How?!?

I found this on the following website (Hope it helps!): http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/pu...

If you are 16 years of age or over, you can register your consent to donate your organs and/or tissue upon your death. You may complete a Gift of Life Consent Form - Organ and Tissue Donor Registration (3750-84) and submit it to ServiceOntario.

You can obtain a registration form by :

* Accessing the Form 3750-84 (PDF version) directly

* Accessing the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care web site Forms Page

* Accessing the Trillium Gift of Life Network web site

* Accessing the Healthy Ontario web site

* Visiting your local ServiceOntario ? Health Card Services ? OHIP office or Outreach site

Include your health number, name, date of birth, and address on the form. You can indicate whether you are willing to donate your organs and/or tissue for transplant, or for transplant and research. Transplant and research means that the organs and tissue will be removed the same as for transplant. Your body is still available and presentable for a funeral.

This is not the same as giving your whole body to science or to a medical school. You can also indicate if there are organs or tissue you do not wish to donate.

If you are printing the online form please use white paper only. After completing and signing the form, return it to your local ServiceOntario ? Health Card Services ? OHIP office, Outreach site or mail it to the address shown on the top of the form.

You can change or withdraw your consent at any time by visiting your local ServiceOntario ? Health Card Services ? OHIP office, Outreach site or mailing your changes to the address shown below. Please include your health number, name, date of birth, and address.

Organ Donor Consent

ServiceOntario

PO Box 48

Kingston, ON K7L 5J3

When registering your consent to donate :

* If you have a photo health card, you will be sent a new card. It will be the same as your current card but will have :

o A new "card version code" (two letters printed beside your Health Number to show that this is now the current card)

o The words "donor / donneur" on the back of the card

o A code on the back of the card representing your choices

* If you have a red and white health card, you will not receive a new card. You will be sent a notice confirming that the data has been updated. You will also be given a sticker with the words "donor / donneur" to put on the back of your health card.

You can register your consent at any time while :

* Registering for health insurance coverage (for the first time)

* Getting a new card (if you have lost or damaged your card)

* Renewing your card

* Changing information on your health card

Even if you have no other business with the ministry you may still register your consent at any time. This information is stored in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) database.

I also found this info:

Today, you can register your consent at an OHIP office when you renew or register for your health card. If you have the red and white card or have recently renewed your card and did not consent to donate, you can go to the Trillium Gift of Life Network website and download a Gift of Life Consent Form. Then fill it out and mail it in to the address on the form. http://www.giftoflife.on.ca/page.cfm?id=...

I believe in Ontario those are hard-coded or indicated on OHIP cards now.Organ donor cards were phased out a there few years ago.

Putting it in your will won't work because a will isn't read until long after the body is buried. Contact the red cross in your area and ask their help in figuring out the best way to make your wishes known. In the meantime, tell your family of your wishes.

Get an organ donor card, or put it in your will.
