Mission: To provide Canadians in financial need with free travel and accommodations for medical care far from home.

For many Canadians facing serious health issues, getting the care they need isn’t as easy as you’d expect. Vital medical appointments and treatments are often far from home. How do patients get there in a timely way? How do they afford the travel costs? These are things that those suffering from an illness shouldn’t have to worry about when they’re trying to focus on their health.

At Hope Air, we believe that all Canadians should have access to the healthcare they need, regardless of where you live or if you can’t afford to travel. Which is why we’re committed to easing the stress of getting there by providing families, from coast to coast, with free flights and accommodations.

Through a combination of purchased, discounted or donated travel arrangements, Hope Air relies on strong partnerships with the travel industry (airport authorities; airlines; accommodations partners and more) to ensure that we operate efficiently, and that we continue to support every eligible travel request we receive.
