With its outstanding commitment to diabetes care in Canada, Sun Life Financial is a natural partner for Hope Air. In 2014 we formed a strategic relationship with Sun Life to fund travel for Canadians needing treatment for diabetes and its related complications.
In 2019, Sun Life generously committed to a $450,000 contribution over three years, to fund approximately 1,800 flights for patients in financial need to travel for diabetes care.
“Sun Life Financial is proud to team up with Hope Air to provide flights to low income rural Canadians living with diabetes, so they can get the treatment they need to live a brighter life,” said Paul Joliat, Assistant Vice-President, Philanthropy & Sponsorships. “At Sun Life, we see first-hand the physical and financial impact diabetes can have on families, which is why we are committed to the prevention of diabetes and its related complications.”
By supporting the work we do across the country, Sun Life Financial provides a lifeline for families in need to access diabetes care.
