Jumpstart Program

One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport or recreation activities. That means that many kids are missing out.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation.

We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success in life.

They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. This is the power of Canadian Tire Jumpstart.

We try to manage the funds we receive so that we can get as many children as possible enrolled in a sport or activity at least once per year. We have many partners in the community that help us reduce the costs or provide spots for kids when our funding runs out.
