In February, NHS experts warned "opt-in" organ donation will not necessarily result in more donors.

According to figures from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the rate of deceased organ donation in the country has increased by 42 percent since 2007.

The number of Canadians signing up to become organ donors following the tragic bus crash in Saskatchewan that killed fifteen people has risen dramatically.

Elsewhere, Ontario's Trillium Gift of Life Network told Newsweek that 182 people had registered to become organ donators by Sunday, compared to 67 on March 25. "You never know when this kind of tragedy could happen to you".

Johnson says that while the registry has grown, more than 32-hundred people in MI are still on transplantation waiting lists.

"Logan gave very clear to his family that he had signed a donor card when he turned 21 a few weeks ago - said Langevin in a posting on Facebook".

For the first year ever, more than 1,500 people in the United Kingdom donated their organs after they died, with the number rising by 11 percent over the previous year.

Michelle Vanderhart, a mother of three in Fort MacCleod, Alta., said her two-year-old son Mason is one of the people for whom the decision to register could mean the difference between life and death.

April is Donate Life Month, and today is Donate Life Day, with a push to encourage organ donations.

"The decision to donate organs is a powerful gift, made more poignant because it often happens at an incredibly hard time", said Alberta Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Sarah Hoffman.

A spokesperson for Manitoba's organ donation agency said there has been a "remarkable" jump in signups since the Friday crash, with more than 300 people registering as organ donors. "Each of us has such power to save lives, to soften the grief of our families, to take away from them the burden of not knowing what our wishes are".
