Your decision to register now could one day save up to 8 lives and enhance as many as 75 more.
If you are 18 years of age or older and have a valid Manitoba Personal Health Information Number (PHIN), you can register your intent online to become an organ and tissue donor. By registering your intent, information about your donation decision will be available and accessible should it ever be required.
When you register your intent to donate organs and tissue, your donation decision is recorded in a Manitoba Health database. In the event of your death or imminent death, when all life-saving efforts have failed, your donation decision will be disclosed for the purpose of sharing this information with your family so that they can honour your wishes.
You should register even if you signed a donor card. A signed donor card is not recorded in the Manitoba Health database and may not be available when needed. Organ and tissue donor intent registration is the only secure and guaranteed way to make your decision to save lives known.
Before You Start
To register, check or update your consent to donate organs and tissue you will need:
- Your health card number (9 digit PHIN)
