As of December 1, 2019 we are introducing a $5 + GST per day optional contribution on all trips, with 100% of the proceeds helping to establish and support Helicat Canada’s new Wildlife & Environmental Research Fund.
Over the last 20 years, we have contributed almost $2.5 million towards research projects and the work of HeliCat Canada. These investments have aided the development of best practices in environmental and community sustainability and safety and to promote the growth of the helicat sector in a way that is economically, environmentally, and socially responsible.
However, there is always more we can do to improve how we operate. Supporting this new initiative is another important step forward.
Guests will have a $5 + GST per day voluntary contribution added to the cost of their trip at the time of final payment. The cumulative amounts collected by all those participating will add up to a substantive fund.
The money raised will go towards targeted research projects that will enable our sector to continually improve in areas such as wildlife, climate change, and avalanche safety. More information on the fund is found on the HeliCat Canada website.
