The 99s Canadian Award in Aviation is given annually to worthy, charitable organizations or institutions who work to improve and preserve aviation in Canada. The award has been in existence since 1974 and has been awarded to recipients across Canada. The board of trustees presents the award of approximately $2,000.00 on behalf of all Canadian 99s. Since its inception, the award has come to be recognized as a special part of the aviation community; not just as a financial gift, but as recognition by a prestigious international organization of women pilots.
