We were proud to be invited to North Caribou Lake First Nation in September, to celebrate alongside Chief, Council and community members, the connection of the northern Ontario community to the provincial power grid! Our $257,000 cheque presentation to our Revenue Share Community on this day is also a milestone in the total amount of funds given back to our partner communities. Since inception of our program, over $8 million has been given back.

To-date North Star Air’s growing strategic business partnerships include 11 First Nations: Cat Lake, Deer Lake, Kashechewan, Marten Falls, Neskantaga (Lansdowne House), North Caribou Lake (Weagamow, Round Lake), North Spirit Lake, Poplar Hill, Sachigo Lake, Webequie and Eabametoong (Fort Hope).
In support of our vision and mission, our strategic business relationship with our First Nation community partners include the following benefits:
- A revenue-sharing agreement whereby the proceeds are linked to the sales revenue of each community.
- Work together to create new business opportunities and employment while protecting and preserving the environment and maintaining First Nation values, culture, traditions, and identity.
- Take Flight Aviation Program Grants are available to our First Nation Partner Community members who are registered in an accredited Aviation Program anywhere in Canada. Click Take Flight Aviation Program for more information and application form.
This past June, we also travelled to Neskantaga First Nation to celebrate a Revenue Share cheque presentation to Chief and community members.
