As part of our Business Continuity planning, Canadian Blood Services may need to call on volunteers to provide support where the availability of our normal volunteer base has been impacted due to unforeseen events such as a national disaster, pandemic or neighbourhood emergency. This would most likely be necessary in the event of such a scenario and only where circumstances might jeopardize our ability to ensure we are able to respond to the urgent need for blood and blood products. In such a situation, on-call volunteers would be contacted to determine their availability to assist where required.
