Manitoba’s health minister, Cameron Friesen, is expected to make an announcement related to a simplified organ and tissue donor registration process.
The province saw a record number of 22 people who became deceased organ donors last year.
That’s due, in part, to a mandatory referral policy connecting hospitals with Transplant Manitoba.
The policy was introduced in 2014 and led to a steady rise in potential donors.
The province is also taking a wait-and-see approach after Nova Scotia implemented presumed consent when it comes to organ donation.
