The Canadian Transplant Association (CTA), is a registered charitable organization founded in 1987 to enrich and celebrate life while promoting organ and tissue donation. Our members share a unique bond and include transplant recipients, candidates on transplant wait lists, donor families, living donors, families, friends and health care professionals.

Membership is open to all Canadians who share our mission to increase organ and tissue donation rates in Canada. The volunteer CTA Board of Directors collaborates with a number of related government, corporate and private organizations, provincially and nationally, and is a member of the World Transplant Games Federation.
