We encourage our guests to declare a food allergy or restriction by March 7th so that the chefs can accommodate them. We want everyone to enjoy all that the evening has to offer! 

CHS Rendez-vous 2023

Registration is now open for Rendez-vous 2023, the most important gathering of the inherited bleeding disorder community in Canada! Click in the link to see the amazing weekend program.

CHS Survey on Gene Therapy Results

This past summer, the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) conducted an on-line survey on attitudes to and knowledge about gene therapy. The results were presented and discussed at the CHS Blood Safety and Supply Committee special meeting on gene therapy this autumn in Toronto.

The survey, whose answers were anonymous, was targeted at Canadian residents with severe hemophilia A or B, fourteen years of age or older, who represent the patient group that might consider taking gene therapy in the next five years.

Go to CHS CONTACT to read more about the results of the survey.

Nominate a Volunteer

As a grassroots organization, none of our programs and services would be possible without the time, energy and talents of our volunteers. Volunteer contributions are vital to the work of the Chapter and those contributions are both recognized and valued. The CHS-MC Volunteer Award Program has categories honoring the service of Manitobans impacting the bleeding disorders community. The nomination form  has a description of the award and the previous recipients. Show a volunteer some love and make a nomination of a person who has made a difference to your family. Deadline for nominations is February 28th.

Special Guest Emcee Michelle Bailey 

We are pleased to announce that Winnipeg native Michelle Bailey will guide our guests through the evening program! Michelle has worked in the communications industry for over 32 years, starting out as a news reporter and TV anchor, primarily for Global Television (CKND and STV), in Winnipeg and Saskatoon.

Michelle eventually moved into the field of public relations and issues management by getting involved in provincial and municipal government communications, private corporate communications and not-for-profit. Somewhere during this time, she signed on for the greatest role she could ever ask for. Being “Mommia” to two phenomenal kids who are now 24 and 20.

Cocktail Hour

Cocktail hour begins at 6:00 pm. Start your evening with a cocktail or two from our wonderful sponsors!  We are never disappointed with our returning favourites and new friends!  Arrive early to enjoy the offerings and peruse the amazing prizes!  

Thank you to our Cocktail Hour Sponsors
