Make my consent to organ and tissue donation official
There are 2 ways you can give RAMQ your consent to organ and tissue donation: you can enter your consent in the Registre des consentements au don d’organes et de tissus or affix a signed sticker on the back of your Health Insurance Card. Each donation may save up to 8 lives and help restore the health of 20 other persons.
Entering your consent in the Registre
You can enter your consent in the Registre des consentements au don d’organes et de tissus managed by RAMQ. Your registration will be valid for life and confidential. This way, your consent will be official and in keeping with your wishes when you die. Remember to notify your family to make sure that it respects your choice.

How the Registre works
The register contains over 3.3 million consents. When a person passes away, a doctor or an authorized person can quickly request that Transplant Québec or Héma-Québec check whether the consent is registered. To find out more on organ donation, refer to the website Signez don!.
Cancellation of your consent
You can cancel your consent at any time. Just call us or come to our Québec or Montréal reception desks to obtain the form Revocation of Consent to Organ and Tissue Donation.
Sticker on the back of the Health Insurance Card
When we mail you a renewal notice for your Health Insurance Card, you will also get a sticker. Sign it and affix it on the back of your card to give your consent to organ and tissue donation. You will have to repeat this every time you renew your card for your consent to remain valid.
Alternatively, you may order the sticker online on the website of Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.
Living organ donation
You may donate an organ or portion thereof during your lifetime. Donation of a kidney or portion of your liver will help patients undergoing a transplant. To find out more, refer to the page Living Organ Donation on the website of Transplant Québec.
