BOOK A DONATION

Donate Blood This Canada Day

The need for blood is constant. Donated blood lasts no longer than 42 days. Platelets, a component of blood, have a shelf life of only seven days. Current evidence indicates COVID-19 is not transmitted by blood or blood products. If you are in good overall health and meet our eligibility criteria, please book and keep your appointment to give blood.

At this time, we can only welcome people with appointments. This is in compliance with public health authorities’ requests to practice healthy physical distancing. Book your appointment at blood.ca, on the GiveBlood app, or by calling 1.888.2.DONATE.
