As a 100 per cent Inuit-owned airline, Canadian North was pleased to see thoughtful, in-depth coverage of northern social and economic issues in The Hill Times’ recent policy brief, which included recognition that northern airlines play an essential role in the health and well-being of northern Canadians, particularly during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Canadian North serves an incredibly small and widely dispersed customer base, which represents less than one per cent of Canada’s population, distributed across almost 40 per cent of Canada’s landmass and three time zones. This includes Canada’s northernmost communities, Grise Fiord and Resolute Bay. Of the 25 northern communities within our network, 23 have no road or rail access and limited seasonal sealift service, so our flights enable the movement of people, food and other crucial goods as well as access to medical care and government services—things that most other Canadians take for granted.
