About First Air


Community First

As an Inuit owned organization with over 60 years of northern heritage, First Air is proud to lead the way in community support in the North.

Our support is focused on sponsorship initiatives that are aligned with our core values, such as:

  • aboriginal and youth development programs
  • literacy and educational programs
  • economic development opportunities
  • sporting events
  • cultural or community events

From major athletic events like the Arctic Winter Games to grassroots community projects, First Air contributes over $40 million annually to Canada’s northern economy.

Our Involvement

Through grass-roots community reinvestment, meaningful employment opportunities and by providing beneficiaries with tangible benefits, First Air continues to demonstrate social responsibility and leadership in northern transportation services.
