Thank you for your interest in being part of a powerful story. A story of connections between donors, recipients and everyone who brings them together. When you volunteer with us, you are also joining Canada’s lifeline. Together, we are all part of Canada’s lifeline.
Become a volunteer
Please note: Canadian Blood Services requires that all volunteers be fully vaccinated (COVID 19 vaccine doses as approved by Health Canada)
Greet donors with a smile, make conversation, and accompany them throughout their donation process. Help them feel welcome and comfortable. The care and attention you give is very often a key reason why donors return. As one of the last faces donors see on their way out, you play a critical role in the success of future blood donor clinics.
Help host, coordinate and promote blood donation events in local communities and workplaces or be a team leader in our donor centres. As a volunteer leader you will also work closely with our employees and learn how to recruit, train and schedule volunteers.
In-community volunteers & public awareness
Our in-community volunteers play an integral part in spreading awareness for blood donation. They promote donation events and recruit new donors in their local communities. Opportunities are also available for volunteers to join our Speaker’s Bureau to help promote our work and the ongoing need for donors.
Blood typing events provide the opportunity for individuals to learn both their blood type and how they can contribute to the blood system. Qualified ABO typer volunteers perform typings on individuals and provide information on various blood types as well as promote the importance to donate blood.
