A new poll shows that 84 per cent of Canadians support the donation of human organs and tissue after death, but fewer appear willing to be donors themselves.

“Two thirds of Canadians (68 per cent) say they would want their organs and tissue to be donated after their death, while 21 per cent disagree and 11 per cent are undecided,” Research Co., who conducted the poll, said in a news release.

Even fewer have officially committed to being donors.

“Across the country, only 43 per cent of Canadians say they have registered to be an organ and tissue donor after their death,” Research Co. said.

In contrast with this figure, the Canadian government says less than one quarter of Canadians are registered donors.
