Canadian Blood Services National Recruitment Drive - Winnipeg

Half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who will need blood at some point in their lives. Yet only 4% of Canadians donate!

On January 31st and February 1st, 2017, Robertson College Winnipeg's Medical Laboratory Assistant program will be working with the Canadian Blood Services to help recruit donors as part of the National Recruitment Drive!

Date: Tuesday, January 31st, 2017
Time: 10:30 - 2:30 pm
Location: 265 Notre Dame Ave

The Canadian Blood Services team will be on site at our main campus to help spread awareness. A typing station will be available in the student lounge on the lower level to help you identify your blood type.
Date: Wednesday, February 1st, 2017
Time: 8:00 - 9:30 am
Location: 433 Main Street, 13th Floor

Stop by for a coffee! We will be set up in the lobby of the 13th floor adjacent to the elevators.

The Canadian Blood Services has arranged for shuttles on February 8th and 9th  to take you directly to their collection site! To donate, you can sign up for the shuttle or book a future appointment at a site that is convenient to you!

Tips for a Positive Donation
  • Have a good meal before coming to donate!
  • Limit yourself to one cup of coffee or tea the day of your donation.
  • Drink LOTS of water the days leading up to and on the day of your donation.
  • Remember to bring a piece of identification.
