More on Canadian Blood Services

Canadian Blood Services is a not-for-profit, charitable organization whose sole mission is to manage the blood and blood products supply for Canadians.

To this end, Canadian Blood Services:

  • Collects approximately 850,000 units of blood annually and processes it into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year.
  • Screens every donor and tests each unit of blood or blood product collected for a variety of transmissible diseases.
  • Ensures that Canadian transfusion medicine research and development remains at the cutting edge.

Canadian Blood Services is committed to blood safety. In addition to the effective screening and testing processes, this pursuit of safety is reflected in every branch of its organizational structure and in each management and operational decision that is made.
