The Alberta Cord Blood Bank is changing focus as of September 1st, 2014.

Thank you for visiting the website of the Alberta Cord Blood Bank, Canada’s first public umbilical cord blood bank.

We would like to congratulate Canadian Blood Services on its establishment of a public cord blood collection program. As Canadian Blood Services is now prepared to assume this role in serving Canadians, the Alberta Cord Blood Bank is able to switch its focus to the Canadian Rare Disease Cord Blood Banking Program. We would like to thank all of the Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, Doulas and Donors that have helped us throughout our years of public cord blood banking.

If you would still like to donate cord blood for transplantation in an unrelated individual, please contact Canadian Blood Services for more information about their cord blood donation program.

Please note that we will still be accepting donations from donors currently registered in our public cord blood banking program until all such cord blood has been collected. As of now, we are no longer accepting new applications to our public cord blood donation program.
