CHS RENDEZ-VOUS SPONSORSHIP 2017

The Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) is bringing Rendez-vous to Toronto this year! The conference will take place May 25th-28th, 2017. Rendez-vous will feature presentations, workshops, and exhibits on cutting-edge trends in research and treatment for hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders.

Rendez-vous is an invaluable opportunity, in only one weekend, to gain new knowledge at the medical and scientific sessions and community workshops, to network with peers and friends, to visit the pharmaceutical industry exhibits and to participate in the CHS Annual General Meeting. You can find more detailed information about Rendez-vous here.

Hemophilia Ontario will sponsor two individuals to attend, to a maximum of $2000 to assist with:


* Registration to Rendez-vous 2017;

* Hotel accommodation in Toronto at the conference location, arriving on May 25th and departing May 28th, based on single occupancy;

* Banquet ticket for one person (additional guests are at delegate's own expense);

* Transportation based on the most economical option based on the recipients' home location.

Because of the opportunity presented by hosting Rendez-vous in our home province, Hemophilia Ontario is offering a partial subsidy of up to $500 for an additional three individuals.


For both the $2000 and $500 subsidies, selected delegates must submit receipts for reimbursement.

Eligibility criteria for all sponsorships:

 

  • Applicant must be a person with hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, a rare factor deficiency, or a platelet function disorder, including carriers, their immediate family members, or long-time volunteers;
  • Applicant must be able to communicate in English or French, the official languages of Rendez-vous;
  • Applicant must have been an active volunteer in the inherited bleeding disorders community for at least the past year;
  • Applicant must be committed to volunteering with Hemophilia Ontario for at least the next two years;
  • Applicant must agree to attend all conference activities, including medical symposium, CHS Annual General Meeting, and community education sessions;
  • The selected candidate will provide a report to the Hemophilia Ontario Board of Directors within one month of the conclusion of the conference, explaining the knowledge gained at the conference, and how Hemophilia Ontario might use this knowledge to enhance our mission;
  • Within one month of the conclusion of the conference, the selected candidate(s) will write an article for Blood Matters sharing their experience with the inherited bleeding disorders community.
  • The selected candidate's fulfillment of the latter three criteria will be considered by Hemophilia Ontario when reviewing future applications for funding opportunities.

Call for Volunteers

Looking for a way to give back to the bleeding disorder community? Whatever your skills and interests, there is a volunteer opportunity for you.

Current opportunities

Bingo volunteers needed
Bingos are a major source of funds and we need volunteers like you to help out at them. If you have a few spare hours on a Saturday morning once or twice a month, this is a great way to give back and meet other people affected by bleeding disorders. All bingos are held at Delta Downsview bingo hall on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in a smoke-free environment.

To volunteer, contact Susan Turner at 1-888-838-8846, ext. 11.

Speakers Bureau

Share your story to help raise funds for the Canadian Hemophilia Society through Healthparnters.  Healthpartners is a group of 16 national health charities that raise money together through workplace giving campaigns. Speakers Bureau volunteers speak at events that fit their schedule and full training is provided each August by TCOR staff. For more information or to volunteer, contact Susan Turner at 416-972-0641 ext 11.
