Canadian Tire Jumpstart - The Big Play
Submitted By Adam Seys on Thursday, August 6, 2015
Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities Vision and Core PurposeThe vision of Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities ("Jumpstart”) is: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams. Jumpstart’s core purpose is to enrich the lives of kids in financial need through sports and physical activity.

About Jumpstart

Jumpstart is a registered charity that helps kids from financially disadvantaged families participate in organized sports and physical activity. National in scope, but local in its focus, Jumpstart delivers support to children and youth through a Canada-wide network of Chapters and Community Partners. Jumpstart was formed in 2005 and continues to address the ongoing need in our communities to make physical activity more accessible in the lives of Canadian children from financially disadvantaged families. We understand the important life benefits that participation in sports and physical activity can have on the life of a child. Research has proven that participation in sports and physical activity increases a child's chance of overall success through:

  • A healthier lifestyle;
  • Developing life skills, such as increased self-esteem, confidence, teamwork and leadership; and
  • Improved school performance and future educational expectations.

Jumpstart supports programs which are delivered through Service Organizations and coordinated through a network of Community Partners who have the ability and authority to identify a child in need.
