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....

The Grindstone Award Foundation is a charity that enables young female players to participate and improve their skill development in the sport of hockey. The intent is to provide support to communities across Canada and address the needs of players who have a desire to play, but are unable to for financial reasons. The Foundation provides grants to female players under the age of nineteen who have expressed a desire to pursue their goals in athletics. Our selection will be based on financial need and desire, not on hockey ability. It is the Foundation’s intention that all grants will be awarded objectively in accordance with this criteria.
