On Tuesday, the government announced the introduction of a program in partnership with Service BC, it says will make it easier for people wanting to to register.
Service BC centres allow access to a wide range of government services including registering births, marriages or conducting a title search.
A decal on a driver's licence alone is no longer enough to qualify as a donor. Those wishing to donate have to register online at transplant.bc.ca through the BC Transplant Society using a BC Services Card or CareCard.
Service BC centres will now provide organ donation information and assistance for those wishing to register in addition to these other services.
The government says a pilot project held last year at four Service BC offices in Dawson Creek, Quesnel, Port Alberni and Salmon Arm showed a four-fold increase in organ donor registrations.
The program has now been expanded to all 61 BC Service locations.
