Despite a notable increase in blood donations during the past few weeks, Canadian Blood Services continues to urge eligible Canadians to roll up their sleeves for hospital patients.

This spring, a combination of factors, including new donation rules to protect the blood supply from the Zika virus and missed appointments, led to few donations and added pressure on Canada’s blood supply.

Victoria residents can donate blood at 3449 Saanich Rd.
