Nova Scotia set to become 1st in North America with automatic consent for organ donation

Nova Scotia could become the first province in Canada to adopt a policy of presumed consent for organ donation.


That means unless you say no — or your next of kin says no — your organs will be donated if they can be.

Children under the age of 19 will be exempt from the law, which is expected to be implemented in 2020.
