Connecting kids with the medical care they need
A strong supporter of children’s health since 1994, Air Canada Foundation provides thousands of flights for families and kids. They do this by allocating over 20 million Aeroplan Miles to the Hospital Transportation Program, which gets patients and families to the care they need. Aeroplan members can also help by donating their miles.
Creating change, one dollar at a time
Air Canada Foundation also generates fund through the Every Bit Counts program, which is a spare change collection program on board flights, as well as through an annual Air Canada Foundation golf tournament.
Prioritizing children and their families
Each year, Air Canada Foundation provides grants to our hospitals on a request basis, as well as fundraising tickets to events across Canada. Air Canada Foundation continues to put children and their families at the top of their priority list as they look for unique opportunities to give.
Bringing kids together to celebrate miracles
Since 2014, Air Canada Foundation has been the official travel sponsor of the Children’s Miracle Network Champions program, providing flights for our Champions and their families to Orlando for the annual Children’s Hospitals Week celebration.
