CHS CONTACT has published the joint guidance notice from the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD), European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC), and U.S. National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) with regards to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The CHS will publish Canada-specific guidance on COVID-19 vaccination for people with bleeding disorders as it becomes available from the Association of Hemophilia Clinic Directors of Canada.

Please help us understand how you use social media by taking this short SOCIAL MEDIA SURVEY. The survey will close on January 25th.

Would you like to submit ideas and/or be a contributor to the content that CHS-MC publishes? We are always looking for Chapter members to contribute content to all our social media platforms. This includes articles, website design, graphic design, and posts for our social media platforms. Contact Christine at the Chapter office: 204.775.8625 or  

Do you have more to say? Is your bleeding disorder and your voice represented by the Chapter? The CHS-MC Communications Committee will be holding virtual focus groups to allow a deeper conversation about what our members need and how to improve our social media channels. Contact Christine at the Chapter office and she will put you in touch with the Communications Committee: 204.775.8625 or  

CHS James Kreppner Memorial Scholarship & Bursary

The CHS James Kreppner Memorial Scholarship and Bursary Program is a posthumous tribute to James Kreppner, a long-time volunteer and member of the CHS Board of Directors, and a highly respected and exemplary activist. He passed away in 2009 from complications related to HIV and hepatitis C. The CHS James Kreppner Scholarship and Bursary Program is an ongoing tribute to James’ dedication, intelligence and commitment to the CHS and community service.

The program is open to Canadians with inherited bleeding disorders: hemophilia (factor VIII or IX), von Willebrand disease, rare factor deficiencies, platelet function disorders; carriers, and those who contracted hepatitis C or HIV through a blood transfusion. Spouses and children of the people mentioned above may also apply.
