Strong communities include strong kids. We believe all kids should have the chance to run, skate, play, and grow. Canadian Tire JumpStart is a community-based charitable program that helps kids in financial need participate in organized sports and recreation such as hockey, dance, soccer and swimming.


National in scope but local in focus, Canadian Tire JumpStart delivers support to children through a Canadian-wide network of local chapters, made up of a variety of community leaders committed to helping kids get active, such as Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA, and Parks and Recreation.


These community partners are joined by Canadian Tire Associate Dealers and Petroleum Agents, and together the chapters identify children in financial need who would benefit from the program.


To date, there are 240 Canadian Tire JumpStart chapters in communities across the country. Since its launch in February 2005, Canadian Tire JumpStart has helped give more than 65,000 kids in financial need the chance to play.
