The Canadian Tire JumpStart program is designed to help with some financial grants for families who want their children involved in organized sports.

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.

Contact 1-877-616-6600. Be prepared to provide contact information and the details of the recreational activity your child would like to participate in. All information is forwarded to your local Canadian Tire JumpStart chapter for review. Applicants will be contacted if they are approved or if further information is required.





The Canadian Tire Foundation for Families


Our Mission

The Mission of the Canadian Tire Foundation for Families is to provide a helping hand to families in need by ensuring life’s basic needs are met.

To us, keeping communities strong, especially in times of difficulty, makes all the difference. Since our launch in 1999, the Foundation for Families has donated more than $30 million to charitable organizations that help families in local communities by ensuring life’s basic needs are met. We also believe that strong communities include strong kids. That is why we created Canadian Tire JumpStart

How We Help – The Foundation for Families’ Charitable Programs

Together with our network of stores, gas bars and employees, the Foundation for Families provides financial support to charitable organizations that help families in need through the following program:


Community Initiative Program
This program runs in partnership with Canadian Tire Dealers and corporate employee teams to provide financial support to community organizations that fit with our mission, such as:


The Community Crisis Program

Together with Dealers and store staff, we help families rebuild their lives after a natural disaster in a local community that has deprived them of their basic needs. In operation since 1999, the Community Crisis Program has helped more than 300 families, including in this example:

In early 2007, a fire left 1,000 students at the Pikangikum school near Kenora, Ont., without a school or supplies. Our local Kenora Dealer collaborated with the Foundation for Families to provide $7,706 in pens, pencils, erasers and backpacks to help get the children back on track.






Kidsport - Financial Help

There Goals, Their Mission
KidSport believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and that all kids should be given the opportunity to experience organized sports with all the positive benefits that go along with being a young active athlete. KidSport provides support for children removing financial barriers that keep them from playing organized sports.

Its About the Kids
With the initiatives of KidSport, success can be measured by the number of children who have been helped to reach the opportunity of experiencing organized sports.

Its About Fun
The primary goal for KidSport is to ensure that each child participating in the sports programming, has so much fun that the can’t wait to play again in the next season!

Its About the Future
Not only does KidSport try to ensure fun all around, they also want to give the opportunity to kids to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial, physical or language barriers that stand in their way. By staying physically active, children are encouraged to maintain healthy habits that will stay with them for their whole lives. Playing sports also provide challenges that teach kids valuable life lessons and skills like leadership, practice, hard work, dedication and self confidence.

Providing a Support Structure

KidSport has over 175 provincial and local chapters that help provide structured support for the organized sports. These chapters give an entity that can build knowledge and potential of supporting sport participation through a Registered Amateur Athletic Association selected from CRA. The chapters also create a positive legal and regulatory action to engage more Canadians and companies in understanding the worth of ensuring all kids experience a healthy lifestyle.
