Canadian Tire Jump Start

Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is a registered charity that helps financially disadvantaged families across Canada in times of need. The Jumpstart program helps financially disadvantaged kids get involved in organized sports and recreational activities. Nationally in scope but locally in its focus, Canadian Tire Jumpstart delivers support to children through a Canada-wide network of over 310 local Chapters. The Program was developed in 2005 to address the ongoing need in our communities to make physical activity a priority in the lives of Canadian children.

We understand the important life benefits that sports and recreation can have in the life of a child. Participation in sports and recreation increases a child's chance of success in life through:

•A healthier lifestyle
•Increased self-esteem and confidence
•Opportunities to learn important leadership skills
•Improved school performance and
future education expectations
•More positive relationships and strengthen support networks

The Local Chapter (Peterborough) consists of several organizations committed to helping children and youth in our community with access to recreation and sport activities.
With the support of the 2 local Canadian Tire Store Owners - The 5 organizations administer funds for deserving families in our community....

Kidsport goals •The immediate goals that drive all KidSport Canada initiatives are:
•To acquire sustainable revenue to maintain KidSport Canada's day-to-day operations that, in turn, support our network of 11 provincial and territorial chapters.
•To generate sufficient long-term revenue to help subsidize the activities and grant applications of provincial and territorial chapters and over 175 community chapters.
•To increase awareness of the KidSport program in more communities with children and youth in need.
•To develop new alliances that will lead to increased financial support so that more children and youth are participating in organized sport.
•To continue creating accessible or no cost initiatives for children and youth with social, financial or physical literacy barriers.

There’s nothing as Canadian as kids playing hockey. Unfortunately, too many kids don’t get the chance because their families can’t afford the cost of equipment and league fees. That means they’re missing-out on the opportunity to develop valuable life skills taught by the game, like teamwork, sportsmanship, and that success comes from hard work. Hyundai Hockey Helpers was created to help deserving kids get in the game. Hyundai Hockey Helpers is in partnership with KidSport. Link for application through Hyundai Hockey Helpers
