What We Do

Helicopters Without Borders is a non-profit organization that delivers health, wellness, and critical support to remote communities and population struck by disaster across B.C.

Across Canada, thousands of people in rural and remote communities are negatively impacted by inefficient supply chains as a result of geography, poor transportation infrastructure, and severe seasonal weather. We provide air transportation solutions to bridge this gap, and increase access to health and wellness in British Columbia.

We run flight programs that transport healthcare professionals into isolated communities that receive little to no access to health and wellness experts. This alleviates the logistical challenges and financial strain of community members having to travel to urban areas to receive care. The clinical workers we transport include: registered nurses, dentists and dental therapists, mental health and addiction support workers, social workers, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and Elders, primary care practitioners, and more.

We work with other charities, NGOs, health authorities, government, and Indigenous governments to secure deliveries of food and clean water, medical supplies, hygiene products, school supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE), and COVID-19 vaccines. We respond to emergency shortages while also promoting ongoing food security, health, and wellness across B.C.

All our flights are carbon-neutral.

We are fully committed to the stewardship of the lands we live and fly on. We recognize that aviation is a significant contributor to global carbon levels. In response, we offset all carbon emissions by purchasing carbon credits through the Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative.
