Purchasing access to the Extended Donor Profiles (Canadian donors only) allows you to view information for all Canadian donors currently available in the catalogue. Access to donor information is for a limited time.


Please view the Samples provided above for components for a preview of the type of information you will access. Not all individual components are available for each donor. Before purchasing access, be sure to check the Additional Information section of the donor catalogue page to see which components are available for your shortlist of donors.

Photographs may be limited, in some instances. The number of photographs available for each donor varies. Although we do our best to provide you with the highest quality photographs, some of these images come from older scans and are lower quality.


Canadian donor samples are guaranteed to comply with Canadian Semen Regulations. These health and safety measures ensure the well-being of the recipient and the offspring and limit the transmission of infectious diseases. Every effort is made to verify the medical history of prospective donors by requesting a copy of their medical records. Screening for genetic conditions is also done according to best practices. An accurate depiction of the donor’s physical traits is always available. Other elements of the donor profile vary and may be subjective in nature and more difficult to confirm.
