BUSINESS INFORMATION:
Canadian Blood Services is a not-for-profit charitable organization that operates independently from government. Created through a memorandum of understanding between the federal, provincial, and territorial governments, we opened our doors in 1998. Our funding comes primarily from the provincial and territorial governments, and we are a registered charity that accepts financial donations.

Canadian Blood Services is one part of Canadas broader network of healthcare systems and is the only national manufacturer of biological products funded by Canadas provincial and territorial governments. We provide blood, plasma, as well as transfusion and stem cell registry services, on behalf of all provincial and territorial governments (excluding Quebec). Our national transplant registry for interprovincial organ sharing and related programs extends to all the provinces and territories. We have a unique relationship with Hema-Quebec, the provincial blood system operator that provides products to patients and manages Quebecs stem cell donor registry. Our two organizations work closely to share blood products in times of need, and we collaborate regularly to share information, insights, and data.

A fundamental conviction anchors the diverse responsibilities of Canadian Blood Services: what we do matters. We ensure Canadian patients have reliable access to safe, high-quality blood, plasma, stem cells, and organs and tissues. To do this, we undertake a broad range of activities in four areas:  

Blood: We collect, test and manufacture blood and blood products, including red blood cells, platelets and plasma. We also provide diagnostic laboratory testing services in some provinces.   

Plasma: We collect plasma from volunteer, unpaid donors in Canada. We retain some of this collected plasma to meet the transfusion needs of Canadian patients, but most is shipped to contract manufacturers who use a process called fractionation to create plasma protein products. We distribute approved plasma protein products derived from our own plasma in addition to the finished product we purchase to hospitals in Canada (excluding Quebec) to treat patients with immune disorders and diseases such as hemophilia.   

Stem cells: We operate a stem cell program that supports better outcomes for patients living with any of the more than 80 diseases and disorders that can be treated with stem cell transplants. We collect cord blood and manufacture stem cells through our cord blood bank. We operate a robust national registry of potential adult stem cell donors and participate in an international network of donor registries. We provide human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing services to ensure the best possible matches between those willing to donate stem cells and those who need them.    

Organs and tissues: We manage a national transplant registry for interprovincial organ sharing and related programs for organ donation and transplantation. Working with partners across the organ and tissue donation and transplantation (OTDT) community, we develop and share leading practices, provide education resources and collaborate on new ways to share data on the performance of the OTDT system in Canada.   

To support these activities, as well as the advancement of transfusion and transplantation science and medicine in Canada and around the world, Canadian Blood Services conducts a wide range of research and development activities and participates in research led by others. Through these efforts, we help to translate new knowledge, processes and technologies into the manufacturing environment. Our research and development work also supports problem-solving in the blood supply chain, contributing to improvements in quality and efficiency. We support professional education and public awareness activities related to transfusion and transplantation and share our knowledge and expertise with our healthcare partners, stakeholders and funders. 

Our priority is to ensure the best possible treatment and care is given to patients. Every choice we make is guided by a focus on the ultimate goal of excellent health care: safe, effective and accessible products and services that patients can rely on to improve their health and well-being.

Our ability to meet that goal relies on the relationships of trust we build with donors. Only through their generosity and dedication can we meet the needs of patients across Canada and for stem cell recipients around the world. We are deeply committed to safeguarding donors health, and constantly seek new ways to enhance their experience at every point where they interact with us throughout the donation process.

Canadian Blood Services is an active contributor and collaborator within national and international networks focused on transfusion and transplantation. We recognize the importance of building productive relationships with stakeholders and governments across Canadas interrelated health systems. The choices we make are prudent and focused, reflecting our deep appreciation of the resource constraints that define the funding landscape.

Tomorrow, next week and next month, the need for blood and plasma is constant.
