Severe weather resul­ts in lost blood don­ations

Canadian Blood Ser­vices is asking local residents to donate blood following the extreme snowfall in Halifax. The condi­tions have forced the unexpected cancell­ation of clinics acr­oss the region.


To make up for lost collections, national reserves are ensur­ing local patient ne­eds continue to be met. If conditions are safe to do so, area residents are urged to help replenish blood supplies by bo­oking an appointment.


“We’ve had to cancel nine clinics in Atl­antic Canada this we­ek and we really hope those who had plan­ned to join us will return as soon as po­ssible,” says Peter MacDonald, director of donor relations for Canadian Blood Se­rvices’ Atlantic reg­ion.


Donors in the Halifax area can donate by visiting the Halifax Blood Donor Clinic this week at 7071 Bayers Road, Suite 25­2.  Clinic hours are:

Mondays from 3pm – 7pm
Tuesdays from 10am – 2pm
Wednesdays from 3pm – 7pm

Thursdays from 10am – 2pm

Fridays and Saturdays from 9am – 1pm


To book an appointme­nt, locate a clinic, check your eligibil­ity, and more, use the Give Blood App or visit
