The Donor Registry

A registry as valuable as your stem cells

Managed by Héma-Québec, the Stem Cell Donor Registry brings together everyone in Québec interested in donating stem cells. The genetic profile of each candidate is kept in a computerized database, linked to the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA), which brings together millions of potential stem cell donors throughout the world.


To enroll in the Registry, you must be:

  • Between 18 and 35 years old.
    • The younger the donors, the better the chances of a successful transplant. Once registered, however, you are eligible to donate until age 60.
  • In good health.
    • Your health and the health of recipients is our priority. For this reason, you must meet certain criteria to be eligible for donation. An evaluation will be carried out following your registration.
  • Ready to donate stem cells to anyone who needs them.
