Organ and Tissue Donation Information Sessions

If you would like more information about organ and tissue donation or how to become a volunteer for Trillium Gift of Life Network these information sessions are for you.

We all want to increase the rate of organ donation in Ontario and these sessions are part of the recent initiatives by Trillium Gift of Life Network to increase awareness.

And according to the number of transplants this year to date, Trillium’s programs are starting to show success. See the statistics.

The first training and information sessions will be taking place at Toronto General Hospital and as noted below, further sessions will be held in Thunder Bay, Coldwater (north of Toronto), Ottawa, Kitchener, Windsor and London. More communities will be added this summer.

    To register for these sessions or for more information please contact Cailey Crawford at e-mail or phone 416-619-2305 or 1-800-263-2833.

      NB: this session is slightly different from the other sessions as it is part of a general presentation to a Church group and will focus less on volunteering with Trillium Gift of Life Network. If you are interested in learning more about organ and tissue donation, please come along and I can chat with folks about volunteering directly after the session is over.
