Canada’s Lifeline


We have partnered with Canada Life – founding sponsors of the student donor recruitment program – to bring you NextGen Lifeline.

NextGen Lifeline is a fantastic way to engage youth on the significance of blood donations. You and your donor recruitment team will become key players on campus, raising awareness and organizing recruitment events. Your involvement can potentially save or improve the lives of hundreds of patients in need of blood and blood products.
