Trillium Gift of Life Network

Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) is the Government of Ontario agency responsible for planning, promoting, coordinating and supporting organ and tissue donation and transplantation across the province and for continually improving the system so that more lives can be saved.

In 2013, Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare became a designated hospital under the TGLN Act. This designation means that MAHC participates in routine notification, which is the rate at which hospitals notify TGLN when there may be potential for organ and/or tissue donation. By implementing a formal program, we are establishing a culture of donation and raising awareness of the organ and tissue donation need across the province.

Today, in Ontario, over 1,500 people are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. For many, this is their only treatment option, and every three days someone will die because there aren't enough organs to meet the need.

By registering to become a donor, you have the power to save or change someone's life. One organ donor can save up to eight lives and enhance as many as 75 more through the gift of tissue.

Register your consent to organ and tissue donation at www.BeADonor.ca/mahc and talk to your family about your wishes.
