According to Territory Manage Jenny Fortin “Over 20 donors are still needed in Kirkland Lake in order to reach the lifesaving target of 72 units of blood for hospital patients in need.” She adds the clinic on October 22nd will be the second-last one for the town.

“In August 2019, Canadian Blood Services announced that with the support of funding governments, plans are now underway to increase plasma collection with three proof-of-concept sites in Sudbury, ON, Lethbridge, AB, and Kelowna, B.C.  Sudbury will be starting its transition at the end of January 2020.  You can read more at”
