Recognition Program

Recognition Program

The Héma-Québec volunteer recognition program highlights the invaluable contribution of:

  • group leaders and volunteers working in permanent groups;
  • members of the Association of Blood Donation Volunteers (ABDV);
  • blood drive organizing committees; and
  • student volunteers.

With our deepest gratitude

The Héma-Québec volunteer recognition program is a way to thank volunteers on a daily basis. It includes various events and tokens of recognition:


  • Annual public recognition as part of National Volunteer Week and National Blood Donor Week
  • Official recognition ceremonies during regional public meetings (in every region every two years)
  • Annual recognition evenings honouring volunteers from permanent groups in Montréal and Québec City

Tokens of recognition

  • Certificate of recognition given every five years
  • Distinctive souvenir pin given after every five-year period of volunteering

Please note that there is a separate recognition program for blood donors and stem cell donors.


Every year, Héma-Québec organizes a special recognition evening for unrelated stem cell donors, in order to honour their extraordinary generosity and selflessness.
