000 Canadians are in wait lists for organ transplants and every single day-and-a-half.

– While Canadians are united in the necessity for a better OTDT system, their opinions differ on potential remedies; for example: – 88 per cent believe the wants of a deceased one who provides signed a donor cards or registered their intent should be followed – whatever the wants of next-of-kin – However, only 54 per cent of Canadians favour presumed consent, in which tissues and organs are believed public good unless one opts out. Meanwhile, 45 percent are decidedly against a system that assumes consent without prior consultation. – Most Canadians list inter-provincial collaboration as the very best priority for developing an integrated system, to ensure wait times are constant across the country and that patients have a fair chance of finding a transplant, regardless of where they live.
