UFV Blood Drive cancelled

In the spirit of the new health directives recently issued by the Province of B.C., the Canadian Blood Service Blood Donation Clinic scheduled for November 12 on the Abbotsford campus has been cancelled. The cancellation aims to help minimize contact and help flatten the COVID exposure curve.

We deeply regret any inconvenience caused by this cancellation. Canadian Blood Services staff will be contacting you shortly to discuss options for rescheduling your appointment, as donations remain as critically important as ever.

Thank you for your understanding.
