Para Sport Jumpstart Fund

Every kid should have access
to sport and play.

In September 2020, Jumpstart launched its Sport Relief Fund and was able to invest $8 million to support over 660 community sport organizations across Canada. To help mitigate the pandemic’s ongoing impact on recreational sport and ensure kids have access to play, Canadian Tire Corporation announced that it is providing an incremental $12 million to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund.

As a result we are proud to announce that we will be accepting applications for the Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund for the remainder of 2021.
