Our team has visited the world (online) to see what resources are in use in other countries. Find links to each resource at the bottom of this page. Many countries and organizations, sharing our belief that education about organ and tissue donation and transplant are key to shifting attitudes so donation is the norm and not the exception, have developed excellent toolkits, videos, interactive infographics, compelling stories and more. If you decide to use a resource from another country, be sure to also include Canadian facts, stats and information about how donation works in Canada.
