Becoming an organ, tissue and ocular transplant donor is an important commitment. You could save the lives of one or more Canadians now waiting for a donor. Tell those closest to you about your decision.

Anyone can donate organs and tissues.  Everyone has the opportunity to become an organ donor no matter your age and health. The medical suitability of the organs and tissues is determined by trained health professionals.

You can indicate your intent to be a donor by checking the appropriate box on your Medicare change request/replacement /renewal form which is available at the Service New Brunswick website Medicare Change Request, Replacement and/or Renewal Form or by calling 1- 888 -762-8600.

Medicare staff will update your request to ensure your intent to donate is noted.  New Medicare cards will have your wishes about donation clearly displayed on the card.
