Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program that helps financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation. Jumpstart helps cover registration, equipment and/or transportation costs.
Jumpstart is an application process and all applications received are submitted for approval. Once approved, applicants will receive a reference number associated with the cheque sent to the organization that is engaging their child in programming.
Please note that either a letter of endorsement or notice of assessment must be submitted with your application.
Jumpstart has an extensive, national network of 332 local chapters. Chapter members are volunteers who are committed to helping get kids active and healthy. They work in partnership with other local non-profit organizations to discreetly 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.
Jumpstart also lends support to unique initiatives aimed at increasing access to sport and recreation programs.
Since its launch in 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has given more than 540,000 kids across Canada the chance to play.
