WAHA Medical Transportation – Timmins Charter Trial Run

Press Release

October 20, 2022

Attention to all First Nations patients within the WAHA catchment area.

It can be challenging for many First Nations Individuals living in remote fly-in Communities to access necessary medical care. WAHA Medical Transportation Services is diligently working to improve quality service and continues to look for ways to ensure our patients can attend their medical appointment(s) as seamlessly as possible.

As part of a trial run, WAHA Medical Transportation Services will be adding a Timmins Charter flight that will operate from October 24, 2022, to March 31, 2023.

  • Beginning Monday, October 24, 2022, charters will operate Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
  • Beginning Monday, October 31, 2022, Charters will also operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For the Timmins Charter to continue to operate after March 31, 2023, we must fill seats. This will be contingent upon patients attending their medical appointment(s).

When a patient is unable to attend their appointment(s), the patient must contact WAHA Medical Transportation 24 hours before their travel date. This will ensure we meet the needs of other patients’ travel and decrease the no-show rate.

The same process should be applied to all medical transportation travel.
