NATA Member Bulletin- COVID-19 Update
April 5, 2020


Dear NATA Members;

We, as the community of northern and remote operators and supporting businesses, have been hit with an unprecedented crisis.  For many of us, our businesses are in peril and talk of relief has yet to amount to any substance.

And yet, we persist.  Our members are among the most adaptive and resilient operators in the industry, weathering challenges others couldn’t imagine as a course of business.  We hear stories every day about how operators are shifting focus to areas of need across the country.

The Northern Air Transport Association is here to support you.  We’re being vigilant in communicating with government to gather and share information as it becomes available.  Our website – www.natacanada.org – is updated regularly with new material as it is received.

Our goals are to:
- Restart the economy as soon as possible
- Ensure adequate payroll relief for all sizes and types of operators
- Ensure access to bridge financing and favourable loans for all sizes and types of operators
