First in North America

First in Canada

  • British Columbia is the first province in Canada to introduce technology that allows residents to register completely online as organ donors with a digital signature. 

First in BC

  • BC Transplant performed the province’s first “Donation after Cardiac Death” (DCD) organ recovery, helping to expand the number of organs available for transplant and offering organ donation to more families in B.C.
