Trudeau to announce Canada ending ban on blood donation for gay men | FULL

1 min read

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to announce on Thursday that Health Canada has given Canadian Blood Services the green light to lift specific restrictions on blood donations for men who have sex with other men.

The federal regulator said in a news release Thursday that it has now authorized a request from Canadian Blood Services to lift the restrictions around screening questions for men who have sex with men, that banned them from donating blood for three months.

The move officially green-lights a policy change by the blood service that officials said is expected by Sept. 30, 2022.

Instead, donors will be screened regardless of gender or sexuality, for high-risk sexual behaviours.
