Canadian Blood Services

Bring Your A, O, B and AB Game!

The need for blood is constant. Over 100,000 new blood donors are needed every year to ensure patients in Canada have access to lifesaving blood and blood products, where and when they need them. You can make a meaningful difference for those who live, work, study and play in your communities and across Canada.

About Canadian Blood Services

Canadian Blood Services is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Regulated by Health Canada as a biologics manufacturer and primarily funded by the provincial and territorial ministries of health, Canadian Blood Services operates with a national scope, infrastructure and governance that make it unique within Canadian healthcare. In the domain of blood, plasma and stem cells, we provide services for patients on behalf of all provincial and territorial governments except Quebec. The national transplant registry for interprovincial organ sharing and related programs reaches into all provinces and territories, as a biological lifeline for Canadians.
