No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another. — Charles Dickens

Our programs

The Air Canada Foundation is committed to giving back to children and the community through various programs and partnerships. Through Aeroplan points donations, we are able to sustain the Hospital Transportation Program. We enable other charities to reach their fundraising goals, all within our main mission of helping children.

Below is an overview of our main programs.

Hospital Transportation Program

Donated Aeroplan points contribute to transporting children across Canada seeking advanced medical treatment not offered in their community.

Every Bit Counts

Through on board currency donations of any denomination, the funds collected are redistributed to Canadian registered charities. Any quantity is welcomed, because every bit counts!

Wings of Courage

Bringing the flight deck to pediatric hospitals, Air Canada pilots spend the day with children to encourage them on their journey. Each child is presented with a “Wings of Courage” medal and an Honorary Pilot certificate in recognition of their bravery.

Humanitarian Support

The Air Canada Foundation is committed to providing humanitarian support in times of crisis.
