The Province has provided a one-time investment of $16.5 million to 55 regional airports that host medevac services throughout B.C.

Each airport operator submitted a letter of interest confirming its role in hosting medevac services, identifying its pre and post COVID-19 revenues, and its revenue and expenditure projections for 2021.

Based on a combination of their revenue losses and the budgeted expenditures, airports received funding from one of four categories:

  • Category A – airports receiving $720,000
  • Category B – airports receiving $360,000
  • Category C – airports receiving $180,000
  • Category D – airports receiving operational grant funding of up to $90,000
