About Legacy of Life: Nova Scotia Organ and Tissue Donation Program

Creating Hope in the Face of Tragedy

In the fall of 2006, the Government of Nova Scotia created the Legacy of Life: Nova Scotia Organ and Tissue Program. Our goals are to:

  • Raise the public’s awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation; and
  • Encourage people to give the legacy of life by signing up to be a donor.

A lot has been accomplished thanks to the dedication of health care professionals, families and clinicians in Nova Scotia, with the support and encouragement of the Legacy of Life Program.

By educating each and every Nova Scotian about the importance of organ and tissue donation, we know we can make a difference in the lives of thousands who are currently waiting.

Vision:

To ensure all Nova Scotians know about organ and tissue donation, and choose to donate.

Mission:

The Organ and Tissue Donation Program will encourage and promote organ and tissue donations, and optimal care for all potential donors and families throughout Nova Scotia.
