Helping kids reach new heights

Our mission

Through its programs or other initiatives, the Air Canada Foundation provides financial or fundraising support to Canadian-registered charities focused on improving children's health and well-being. Through our main pillars, we help children reach new heights.

  • Connecting children to medical care
  • Alleviating child poverty
  • Helping children fulfill their dreams

The Foundation also offers continued support to major health-related causes that benefit Canadians and is an active participant in international humanitarian relief activity as the need arises.

A big thank you to those who donated their Aeroplan Miles during the annual Mile Matching week!

All donated miles will go to the Air Canada Foundation Hospital Transportation Program, helping children access medical care that is unavailable to them locally.

Since 2003, hundreds of families have counted on the Hospital Transportation Program to alleviate the emotional and economic burden of travelling by air for medical treatment. Each year, the Air Canada Foundation donates millions of Aeroplan Miles to 15 pediatric hospitals across Canada, helping sick children get the medical care that they need.

Aeroplan and its members donated more than 6.8 million miles to the Air Canada Foundation during its recent Mile Matching Week.

Make your miles count when you donate your Aeroplan Miles and show your support for the Air Canada Foundation all year long.
