Canadian Blood Services

Canadian Blood Services operates a national blood inventory where products are regularly shifted around the country to meet hospital and patient needs. The inventory is currently strong, but the recent increase in cancellations is worrying, particularly in light of the blood shortages already being reported in other countries affected by COVID-19. Canadian Blood Services urges all healthy eligible donors to book and keep appointments. If you are unable to donate, Canadian Blood Services is always in need of volunteers. To make an appointment, or for more information on volunteering please contact Canadian Blood Services directly.
