A government of the Conservative Party of Québec will make the following amendments to article 2.0.8 of the Act facilitating organ and tissue donations:

  • For the purposes of the fourth paragraph of article 2, any person may, at any time from his application for registration with the Régie in accordance with section 9 of the Health Insurance Act (chapter A-29), express in writing, on a form provided for this purpose by the Régie, his/her willingness to no longer authorize the removal of organs or tissues from his/her body after its death for transplant, as permitted by section 43 of the Civil Code of Québec. This consent may be terminated at any time, in writing, using a form provided to that end by the Régie. This amendment will result in changes to other laws: the Health Services and Social Services Act, the Labour Standards Act and the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec act.
