Your generous donation will cover necessary air travel and offset administrative costs for some of our most important national work. It also means more donated dollars can go to program work.
Help us combat climate change, protect biodiversity and ensure your right to a healthy environment.
Why are you partnering with Aeroplan?
We use teleconferencing for meetings and choose active or public transportation whenever possible. But air travel is necessary for some of our work, such as with Indigenous groups in remote areas. All travel done via the Aeroplan Member donation program is also tracked and offset with a high-quality carbon offsets vendor.
How will you use my donated miles?
Your generous Aeroplan Miles donation allows our staff to travel by air when necessary and buy other available items, such as hotel bookings and IT products. Using your donated miles lowers our administrative costs. That means we can use a greater percentage of dollar donations for our program work.
Can I receive a tax receipt for my Aeroplan Miles donation?
No. According to the Canada Revenue Agency, Aeroplan Miles do not have monetary value.

Why are you partnering with an airline and major polluter?
Aeroplan's parent company is Aimia, not Air Canada. We can redeem your donated miles with many partners, including Air Canada. We can also use donated Aeroplan Miles for other essential products and services such as hotel costs, car rental and IT products.
Why should I donate miles so David Suzuki can fly around Canada?
We do not pay for David’s personal travel. We may use Aeroplan Miles if he travels when working as a volunteer on our behalf, in accordance with our travel policy.
