National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week

Posted on April 23, 2023

National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week (NOTDAW) raises awareness about the critical need for more donors across the country and encourages Canadians to register their decision and to talk to their loved ones about organ donation. 

Every year, National Organ and Tissue and Awareness Donation Week is held during the last full week of April.

April 21-27, 2024 | April 20-26, 2025

Approximately 4,400 Canadians await a lifesaving organ transplant. Each year hundreds of Canadians die waiting. 90 per cent of Canadians say they support organ donation, yet only 32 per cent have registered their decision. Become an organ and tissue donor today! Register here.
