CHS Survey for Families living with Hemophilia B

This is a request from the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) to provide patient/caregiver input on living with hemophilia B. The survey is about patient/caregiver perspectives with regards to the possible introduction of innovative therapies for people with hemophilia B.

Please complete the survey if you have hemophilia B or are a caregiver of a person with hemophilia B. All responses are anonymous.

The CHS will use the patient/caregiver perspectives to advocate for access to innovative therapies. To have convincing data, it is important that as many people as possible complete the survey from all parts of Canada.

The CHS appreciates your engagement in your health care.

2019 Grey Cup Pool 

Chapter member Wayne Wolanski brought this amazing fundraiser to the Chapter 9 years ago! The proceeds from the two complete pools (1800 tickets!) funds the majority of the Chapter’s Member Services like parking reimbursement and temporary wheelchair rentals. Can you sell some tickets? We give them out in sets of 10. Do you want to buy some? Contact the Chapter office at or call 204.775.8625.
