Organ Donors in British Columbia

Global BC found  a distinct pattern for organ donors in British Columbia by mapping the number of people on the organ donor registry across the province.

The areas with about 10% participation in donations includes many new immigrants where language and cultural barriers may limit who hears about and feels comfortable signing up for a donation. The map is based on the 2006 Census. To see the map, click here.
