CANADA Drive

Register NOW and donate when you can.

"Every 60 seconds someone in Canada needs blood. One donation can improve or save up to 3 lives."

A generation after the Events of 1984, when thousands of innocent Sikh men, women, and children were killed in Panjab, Delhi and rest of India, UNITED SIKHS has started an online campaign to register Canadian Sikhs as blood donors.


There are about 400 000 active donors in Canada - comprising about 1.2% of the population. There are 400,000 Sikhs in Canada, hence we are asking Canadian Sikhs to give their share of blood to their country of residence. Our target is to register 4,800 Canadian Sikhs as potential blood donors. If you are resident in Canada and you are the Giving Type, all you have to do today is Register NOW and donate when you can.


In the spirit of Sarbat da Bhalla (well being towards all), let's follow the example set by Bhai Kanhaiya Ji, a sevadar in the army of the 10th Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who served water to wounded soldiers in the battle of Anandpur Sahib in 1704, with love and affection and without any discrimination between the Guru's Sikh soldiers and the opposing Mughal army's soldiers.
