Hope Air
We couldn’t do what we do without the passion and support of the strong team here at Hope Air. All dedicated to our mission of helping Canadians in financial need reach vital medical care far from home. Each day, our dedicated staff and volunteers work together to bridge the distance between home and hospital for those in need.

“ I love working at Hope Air because you get to see the impact of our work every day. Every fundraising effort is to support a person’s travel to a critical medical appointment. Every person we reach is one more patient reaching critical care without having to postpone or cancel that trip or face difficult financial decisions along the way. ”
