General Cargo

An airport to airport service is available for the movement of general cargo throughout the Bearskin Airlines network. Interline cargo agreements with Air Canada and other air carriers permit the movement of cargo between most points in Canada.

Envelope Service

An envelope service is available for envelopes and small packages not exceeding 2 kg (5 lbs.). The charge for this service starts at $18. Contact Bearskin Airlines Cargo for size and other restrictions.

Pickup & Delivery

For an additional charge, we can provide for pickup and delivery within the communities we serve. Just call us in advance to make the necessary arrangements.

Live Animals

Bearskin Airlines accepts live animals for shipment. Our past experience includes bear cubs, moose calves, worms for bait dealers and live fish, as well as your everyday family pets like cats and dogs. Our aircraft does not offer heated stowage. For this reason, we have an embargo on flights operated between October 15 and April 15 each year when we will not accept live animals for shipment. 

From time to time, we help Northern communities and rescue animal operations move animals from Northern communities to urban centres in order to obtain necessities of life and/or veterinarian care.  This shall be done in accordance with Provincial and Federal Regulations.  Please see our Rescue Animal Policy and accompanying documentation Shipper's Certification for Live Animals for more information. 

Dangerous Goods

Bearskin Airlines does accept Dangerous Goods for shipment at most stations. Exceptions are class 7 radioactive materials. To inquire about service charges and full details related to shipping Dangerous Goods, please contact us in advance. 

If you're unsure about something in your shipment, please ask!

Note: Any undeclared Dangerous Good that is found during a search / scan of a package must be held for future inspection by Transport Canada. These items may or may not be returned to you at their discretion.

When shipping dangerous goods (or travelling with dangerous goods) you must ensure the item is packaged and handled according to Transport Canada dangerous goods regulations.

If you have any questions regarding shipping (or travelling with) dangerous goods, please contact our Dangerous Goods hotline (1-800-665-8986) ext 4444 or Our in-house dangerous goods expert will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your item(s). Hours of Operations Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Declared Value for Carriage

The shipper is required to make a declaration of value on the air waybills of all shipments. The declaration of value may be in any amount. "No Value Declared" (NVD) is acceptable. For valuable cargo, you must declare a value for carriage. For more information, please contact our cargo office.


Cargo shipments can be sent prepaid or collect in some markets. We accept most major credit cards and we offer credit terms to corporate accounts. Contact us to inquire about opening a corporate account.

Size Limitations

Some freight is subject to advance arrangements due to size and/or special handling requirements. The aircraft serving the route limits the maximum size or weight per shipment. If you have an unusually large or heavy shipment, contact Bearskin Airlines in advance.
