Who Can Donate?
The safety of donors and recipients is a priority at Héma-Québec. That is why it establishes very strict qualification criteria. These criteria are reviewed and assessed on a regular basis. Find some of these criteria below (non-exhaustive list).
As a result of the pandemic, some criteria have been temporarily changed and security measures have been added. Learn about them here.
