Follow these steps to make your donation experience even easier.
1. Before you arrive
You can complete your donor questionnaire online or on the GiveBlood app before arriving at the donor centre. (Not available if you are a first-time donor.)
If you complete your questionnaire online, print your Q-pass barcode and bring it with you. If you complete the questionnaire on the GiveBlood app, your Q-pass barcode will be saved in the app. Just remember to bring your phone with you.
2. Check in and donate
Check into our donor centre with your Q-pass and ID (or Canadian Blood Services donor card, if you have one). One of our trained team members will go over your questionnaire answers with you and perform a hemoglobin test to determine if you can make your donation today. When you’re all set and sitting back to donate, we recommend doing some leg muscle tensing exercises.
3. Relax and refresh
After your donation is complete, sit back and rest a bit. You can still help yourself to some snacks, but they cannot be consumed inside the donor centre.
