Blood donation

Blood donation


To mark the arrival of summer, make an essential gesture and give meaning to life: donate blood. Hundreds of people need your donation to regain their health. Héma-Québec organizes a collection near you. All you have to do is make an appointment! Who knows? You might even make it a habit!

LOCATION: L'église le Chemin

ADDRESS: 480, rue de Vernon, Gatineau

DATE: Monday, June 12, 2023, between 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

OBJECTIVE: to convince 60 donors to roll up their sleeves, the time of a small blood donation.

It's summer, roll up your sleeves!

Since March, Héma-Québec has been pursuing the goal of convincing 7,000 people in Québec to donate blood for the first time. The challenge is well underway, but it is important to stick together to keep our collective blood supply afloat. In this sense, each person who breaks the ice and makes an appointment plays a decisive role. This summer, will you be one of those people? If you are afraid of the needle, know that the people on site are qualified to supervise this experience. They will reassure you, and you will feel the great pride of having given!

In order to avoid line ups and respect your busy schedule, we have set up an appointment system. This approach, adopted due to the pandemic, makes the experience of donating blood even easier for everyone. To make an appointment before going for a blood drive, you can do it easily online: or by phone at 1 800 343-7264 (BLOOD).
