About Jumpstart

This program helps financially disadvantaged kids get involved in organized sport and recreation by covering registration costs.

The goal of this program is to help those children that would not be able to participate in a physical activity without the assistance of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program.

Who can apply?

Parents/Guardians can apply for children aged 4 to 18. The program is open to individual children, not groups or teams. Funding is available for multiple children within the same family.
