Canadian Blood Services
We are Excited to Grow our Partnership with Canadian Blood Services (CBS) to a National Scale
Canadian Blood Services is the national, not-for-profit, healthcare organization that manages Canada’s blood supply in all provinces and territories outside of Québec. They also administer the OneMatch Stem Cell rogram and Marrow Network & the National Public Cord Blood Bank.
Partnering with CBS helps to fulfill a huge national need and complements our relationship with Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Fifty-two percent of Canadians say they or a family member have needed blood. Someone with leukemia can need up to 8 donors worth of blood a week. Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin Clubs serve the community’s greatest need. Donating blood is a nation-wide need that touches most Canadians in their lifetime. More than 80,000 first-time blood donors are needed this year to meet hospital demand.
