Helijet International and the Pacific Salmon Foundation have agreed to a new partnership.

It will help fund wild salmon restoration projects in the Strait of Georgia and on Vancouver Island.

Danny Sitnam, president and CEO of Helijet said like many other British Columbians, the company depends on the beauty and natural resources of BC’s coast for the longevity of the business, which is linked to the success of fishing lodge clients and the satisfaction of their guests.

He said the partnership will generate an annual donation based on the number of one-way flights sold on Helijet’s scheduled passenger service routes between Vancouver and Nanaimo harbours.

The program could see annual donations reach as much as 24,000 per year.
