The Canadian Transplant Association
The CTA is a registered charitable organization comprised of transplant recipients, athletes, health care professionals, supporters, and volunteers dedicated to promoting organ and tissue donation through public advocacy, educational programs, and awareness events such as the Canadian Transplant Games and World Transplant Games. Funds from this event will support the CTA mission of raising organ donor awareness right here in Southern Alberta.

The CTA provides a support network for organ transplant recipients before and after transplantation while promoting organ and tissue donation, as more than 4000 Canadians await a second chance at life. www.canadiantransplant.com

How to become an Organ and Tissue Donor in Alberta:
As of April 22, 2014, Alberta now has an online organ donor registry!

Register your consent to donate at any motor vehicle registry office in Alberta, by completing a “Save A Life” brochure or by registering online at: https://myhealth.alberta.ca/Pages/OTDRHome.aspx

but most importantly, be sure to share your wishes with your family.  Please encourage others to talk about organ donation now before it’s needed so that families will be empowered with the knowledge to make informed decisions when the time comes.
