Become a volunteer

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.

Donor centre volunteers

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.

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.

Stem Cell Recruiter

Stem Cell recruiters are vital in helping us grow the Stem Cell Registry. You’ll be providing education and awareness at in-community recruitment events, assisting potential registrants with the registration process and helping them to complete their cheek swab. Stem cell recruiters have a direct impact on patients looking for a stem cell match.
