"This project speaks to everything that should be important to us: culture, education, social justice, heritage and national pride."
Nancy McClure, Executive Director
The Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour is an epic project that is bringing an air show to EVERY indigenous and northern community across Canada's Arctic region -- that's 97 air shows -- to inspire our youth, educate southern Canadians about Northern culture, and celebrate one of the greatest regions of our world, during a year of celebration for Canada's 150th birthday!
In order to meet all of #ArcticTour150's objectives, we are asking for your help. For a donation of only $25 CDN*, you can have one of the 31,000 kilometres of the journey dedicated in your name and receive an official Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour certificate**. 100% of your donation goes towards achieving the goals of this volunteer-run, historic event!
During 2017, our nation will unite like never before in passion and celebration. A group of aviation enthusiasts wanted to ensure that Canada's 130,000 strong Northern population are given the opportunity to celebrate alongside their southern neighbours.
Two years in the making, the #ArcticTour150 took off June 2nd, 2017, and is now performing air showa through to its final performance in the Nunavut capital of Iqaluit on August 18th. Many communities are so excited that they are creating community events and festivals to coincide with the air show.
The Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour will brave challenges such as weather, terrain and limited resources to unite a country divided by geography.
This project reaches out beyond the air show performances. The team has also developed an innovative education platform with community and thought leaders across the North to educate, empower and inspire young people to build opportunities and live their dreams.
Please help make the Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour a reality and create a ripple effect of emotion for all those who experience it.
