Hope Air is Canada’s only national charity providing Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home, for all ages and medical needs. Since its inception in 1986, Hope Air has provided more than 144,000 travel arrangements to patients in need.
Since 1988 Bearskin Airlines has been a valuable Hope Air partner by getting thousands of Canadians to the medical care they need. In 2010 Hope Air presented the first ever Outstanding Philanthropist Award to Bearskin Airlines. The Award recognizes the exceptional contribution Bearskin Airlines has made to the Hope Air mission of providing Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home. From 2008 – 2018 Bearskin provided nearly 2,000 donated flights for Hope Air patients.
"Hope Air could not get Canadians to the healthcare they need without the donated flights from partners such as Bearskin Airlines," says Doug Keller-Hobson. "We applaud Bearskin Airlines for their charitable contributions and their exceptional generosity in helping Hope Air to remove the barriers of distance and cost that separate Canadians from the healthcare they need."
