CAA Club Group
CAA Club Group has been supporting Hope Air since 2016, providing 3,475 flights for Canadians who need to access medical care far from home. CAA’s Hope Air story starts with CAA Club Group’s President & CEO Jay Woo who saw an ad for Hope Air one day while reading COPA Flight magazine. Jay signed up to be a volunteer pilot and quickly became invested in Hope Air and its mission. He also sits on the Board of Directors at Hope Air.
With its outstanding commitment to diabetes care in Canada, Sun Life is a natural partner for Hope Air. In 2014, we formed a strategic relationship with Sun Life to fund travel for Canadians needing treatment for diabetes and its related complications. Beginning in 2019, Sun Life generously renewed their support and committed $450,000 over three years to fund approximately 1,800 medical flights for diabetes care if patients could not otherwise afford the cost to get there.
Columbia Basin Trust
Since 2014, Hope Air has been partnering with Columbia Basin Trust to assist patients living in the Columbia Basin region and has committed to provide more than 650 travel supports over a three-year period. The Trust supports programs dedicated to the social, economic and environmental benefit of people living in the Canadian portion of the Columbia Basin, located in southeastern British Columbia. The Hope Air flights and accommodations made possible with the Trust’s contributions assist patients of all ages and with a wide range of medical needs.
