In 2013, WestJet proudly provided financial and in-kind support to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada’s Youth Leadership Summit in Ottawa. The landmark event coincided with Big Brothers Big Sisters 100 year anniversary and gathered dozens of former Little Brothers and Little Sisters from across Canada for a one-of-a-kind learning experience. While in Ottawa, WestJet planned a special surprise for the youth. What they thought was an incredibly long and awkward presentation on the history of flight quickly turned into an experience they won’t soon forget!
