To get on a provincial waiting list, you should follow these steps:
- Receive a referral from your physician.
- Contact a transplant hospital. Learn as much as possible about the transplant hospitals in Canada and choose one based on your needs, including insurance, location, finances and support group availability.
- Schedule an appointment for evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for transplant.
- The hospital’s transplant team will decide whether you are a good transplant candidate. Once deemed a good candidate, you will be added to a provincial waiting list.
