Hope Air is the only national charity that provides Canadians in financial need with free travel to medical care far from home, regardless of age or medical need. The Outstanding Philanthropist Award is presented to a CBAA member who has shown exemplary commitment to ensuring equal access to medical care for patients in need across the country. It celebrates their philanthropic leadership, which plays a key role in bridging the gap between home and vital medical care for patients across the country.
