How do I enroll in the Registry?

Each registration can make a difference

If you are between 18 and 35 years old, in good health and willing to donate to anyone who needs it, you could save the life of a seriously ill person. Here’s how to enroll in the Registry:

Step 1

Being well informed is a key part of your decision. For more information, please consult the Decision Support Information to Enrol in the Stem Cell Donor Registry Guide or contact us by phone at 1-800-565-MOEL (6635), ext. 5279, or by email at We’re here to answer your questions! We also have a FAQ section to answer any concerns you may have along the way.

Step 2

It’s time to register! Complete the registration form.

Step 3

After completing the online form, Héma-Québec will mail you a buccal swab kit, which you will receive approximately four weeks after your registration. All you need to do is swab your mouth using the instructions and materials provided, then return the kit to us.

Step 4

A laboratory will analyze your sample to determine your genetic profile. Afterwards, your data will be kept in our completely confidential Register in order to verify if you’re a match for someone waiting for a transplant.
