Canadians count on us to provide a secure supply of high-quality blood and blood products. Our donor centres, supported by recruitment initiatives that encourage Canadians to donate blood, are the critical “front end” of our blood supply chain. Our team members at these centres collect the red blood cells, platelets and plasma that hospitals and clinics need to treat patients.
Ensuring there’s enough plasma to manufacture into lifesaving Ig to meet the needs of Canadian patients has been a focus and responsibility for Canadian Blood Services since since the organization was created, and remains a constant concern.
As an organization founded on the rigorous management of risk, we’ve become increasingly systematic while seeking input from a wider range of stakeholders.
We demonstrate our commitment to serving Canadians through sound and transparent financial management.
