Organ and Tissue Donor Registry
Success for the Organ and Tissue Donor Registry
In 2006, the Chambre des Notaires du Québec created the Registry of consents for organ and tissue donors. Through the will or a mandate in case of incapacity, it is now possible to register the consent relating to organ donation, which may be consulted directly by doctors. Therefore, the consent of the familly is no longer required and the consent of the donor is no longer compromised. The Notaries will suggest to the testator to include such provisions in its will or mandate, since a donor may save up to 8 lives.
