Since 2014, WestJet has provided flights to Bigs, Littles, Alumni, Staff, and Volunteers, to build homes in the Dominican Republic in conjunction with Live Different, in the very same community where WestJetters have been building homes for years!
Since 2013, WestJet has provided support to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada’s YOUth in Office event in Ottawa. This event, in partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, flies 100 kids to Ottawa to engage in discussions with Members of Parliament, Senators, and other leaders of the country to discuss issues of importance from the home constituencies of the youth.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada celebrated their 100th Anniversary in 2013. To help them mark the event, WestJet flew 100 Bigs and Littles to the National Youth Summit in Ottawa. Starting off as a boring lecture on the principles of aviation, it was soon revealed that the real reason they were there was to take part in a private concert from Kardinal Offishall and Karl Wolf.
