The Canadian Blood Services, the agency which governs blood donations in Canada has stated that it is not changing its stance on the ban on blood donations by men who had sex with other men. A spokeswoman for the Canadian Blood Services indicated that "research is going to take time. The environment has changed in terms of what some of the international blood operators are doing, so let's look at the feasibility of a shorter deferal period". The Canadian Blood Service has set aside funding for research into the issue but to date no one has applied.
