Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program that helps financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation. They also support unique initiatives aimed at increasing access to sport and recreation programs. There is a national network of over 315 local chapters, volunteer-based and including representatives from Canadian Tire stores and dealers and petroleum agents, non-profit organizations and charities, and community leaders.
Collectively, they identify kids with the greatest need in their community. Canadian Tire Jumpstart then covers registration, equipment and/or transportation costs to help them participate in a sport or recreational activity of their choice. To find a local chapter, contact 1-877-616-6600.
Applications for assistance can be submitted from January 15 to June 1 for spring/summer programs, and from July 1 to November 1 for fall/winter programs. For more information, visit jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en/.
