Tissue Bank Manitoba

Manitobans' opinions and awareness about organ and tissue donation

Over the years, Tissue Bank Manitoba has surveyed Manitobans on various issues regarding organ and tissue donation. We have used Probe Research to conduct the surveys, which are listed below with links to the reports.

January 2006 Organ & Tissue Donation Awareness Survey of Manitobans

First province-wide survey reporting on Manitoban’s opinions regarding organ and tissue donation. There were 43 questions and the link above lists the topics covered and the Executive Summary of the survey. The full survey is available on request.

June 2006 Recall survey of advertising initiatives regarding organ and tissue donation.

This survey considers the impact of recent advertising of organ and tissue donation including recall, sources of information and donation intentions.

December 2007 Organ and tissue donation awareness.

This is a short follow-up to our 2005/6 major survey of Manitobans regarding organ and tissue donation awareness, to look at the impact of various advertising initiatives.

April 2016 Manitoban’s plans regarding organ and tissue donation.

This survey tracks (from 2005 to 2016) what proportion of Manitobans have decided to donate their organs and/or tissues on their death.

October 2016 Proposed legal changes in Manitoba.

This survey considered the issue of “presumed consent” and what Manitobans think about this. Since we asked this question in our original Provincial Survey in 2005, we are able to see a significant shift in public opinion on the topic.

2016 Donor Family Services survey

June 2017 Public Attitudes Towards organ and tissue donation.

This survey compares families' willingness to cooperate in the donation process depending on whether the deceased family member is a registered donor or not.
