Drones will deliver medicine, medical supplies to Montana First Nation – CTV News

Feb. 29, 2024

People living on the Montana First Nation will soon have their prescription medication delivered by drone.

Ontario-based company Drone Delivery Canada is expanding its drone operations in Alberta through several new commercial agreements which include the First Nation.

Drones currently fly between a YEG drone spot to a Memorial Park location. That will expand to include a medical clinic owned by the First Nation, then on to the community which is located about 90 kilometres south of Edmonton.

In an email to CTV News Edmonton, the company said drones should be on their way to Montana First Nation starting in the spring.

The closest pharmacy is about 15 kilometres from the First Nation. While it may not seem far, Chief Ralph Cattleman said it’s a problem because many in the community don’t have vehicles.
