What You Can Do
Organ & Tissue Donation
The easiest way to get involved is to agree to become an organ donor! This simple and selfless act could mean the greatest gift for someone who needs help: a second chance at life.

What We Do
Support and Education
The Canadian Transplant Association (CTA), is a registered charitable organization founded in 1987 to enrich and celebrate life while promoting organ and tissue donation. Our members share a unique bond and include transplant recipients, candidates on transplant wait lists, donor families, living donors, families, friends and health care professionals.
Membership is open to all Canadians who share our mission to increase organ and tissue donation rates in Canada. The volunteer CTA Board of Directors collaborates with a number of related government, corporate and private organizations, provincially and nationally, and is a member of the World Transplant Games Federation, (recognized by the International Olympic Committee).
The Gift of a Lifetime
Right now, there are record numbers of people in your community who are on transplant waiting lists. There are many opportunities for you to make a difference. If you are interested in volunteering with your local CTA, click on the link below and contact the Provincial Director in your Province.
