General manager of Transplant Québec Louis Beaulieu, organ transplant recipient Linda Paradis, Mayor Régis Labeaume and Johanne Dutil raise the National Week of Organ and Tissue Donations flag beside City Hall. The organs and tissues of Dutil’s late 20-year old son saved two people's lives. ​

To launch the 20th National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week from April 23 to 29, Transplant Québec and the City of Quebec invited citizens to join this year’s organ donor campaign by signing the life-saving Consent to Organ and Tissue Donation Registry and their RAMQ card.
