JUMPSTART DAY - Together we can help all kids play!
On Jumpstart Day, Canadian Tire stores across the country take to their parking lots and retail floors to help raise funds for their local communities. At these participating stores, employees and volunteers will be running activities from BBQ’s to car washes in order to raise funds for Jumpstart. This is because they know that 100% of all donations raised that day stays in their community. That means by donating to Jumpstart at your local store, you are helping kids from YOUR community.
Canadian Tire Corporation Golf Classic in Support of Jumpstart
Over the past 20 years, the Canadian Tire Corporation Golf Classic in support of Jumpstart has raised over $11.2 million to help financially disadvantaged kids participate in organized sport and recreation programs. We believe every child deserves the chance to develop the confidence, social skills and discipline that comes from organized sport. And, they deserve to play and have fun while doing it. Last year’s tournament was a huge success and helped over 15,000 kids participate in sport and recreational activities in communities across Canada.
Once again plans are well underway for the annual Canadian Tire Corporation Golf Classic in support of Jumpstart. We have many exciting updates including a fun and entertaining reception on June 12 and fantastic on-course experiences. This year we’re also offering attendees the chance to play new, exclusive courses through our partnership with Angus Glen Golf Club. As with previous years, proceeds from the tournament will benefit Jumpstart Charities and will help even more kids get in the game.
Pedal for Kids
Jumpstart Pedal for Kids is a 5 day 500km cycling tour with each year taking place in a different part of Canada. This year Canadian Tire Dealers, corporate employees across the enterprise and friends of the corporation rode from Huntsville to Toronto in support of Jumpstart.

Jumpstart Games began in 2003 for kids from our local Community Partners in the Greater Toronto Area. The event has spread across Canada from Vancouver to Halifax and as of 2015 we have seen 52 Jumpstart Games bringing smiles to children’s faces. Children from our local Community Partners are invited to spend a day with games, sports, gifts and food in a safe place. Employees across the Canadian Tire Family of Companies volunteer their days to make sure that local kids have a day to play.
