Some jurisdictions have reported a decrease in neurologic determination of death organ donors (NDD) with the implementation of donation after circulatory death (DCD) organ donation. In Ontario, the largest Canadian province that is served by a single OPO, Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN), DCD began in 2006. DCD in Ontario, now accounts for >21% of all deceased donor activity, one of the highest rates in North America, and represents >73% of all DCD activity in Canada. We retrospectively examined NDD, DCD organ donation and all solid organ deceased donor transplants during 3 eras: (1) Pre-DCD (2002/3-2005/6), (2) Early DCD(2006/7-2009/10), (3) Recent DCD(2010/11-2013/14). In total organ deceased donation in Ontario increased by 64% from 578 donors in era 1 to 905 donors in Era 3.
