Rise Air is a 100 per cent Indigenous-owned company. We work hard to deliver long-term value to our shareholders — the First Nation communities who share ownership of Rise Air through Athabasca Basin Development (ABD) and Prince Albert Development Corporation (PADC). Shareholder Benefits Our profits are re-invested into the communities we serve through payments made to ABD and PADC.
Rise Air’s operations provide funding for community development initiatives in the places we call home. We partner with local organizations to develop training and employment opportunities for First Nation community members. These initiatives create new pathways for members of First Nation communities to work in the aviation industry as pilots, flight attendants and maintenance engineers, and in our corporate areas too.
