  • Canadian Tire Jumpstart Campaign

    Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active, it’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends.

    Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out. Jumpstart as the name implies, was initiated to help children and young people participate in non-competitive recreational sports. Funding is for children and young people of low income families; funds cover, up to a maximum of $300, registration fees, purchase of equipment and transportation costs.

    • Age: 4-18
    • Length of Activity: Minimum one hour per week for 5 weeks or, in the case of sport camps, minimum three hours per week for 3 weeks.
    • Annual Maximum: Two activities per child.
    • Family Maximum: All children and young people of the same family are eligible.
    • General: All funds must directly benefit children and young people; administrative costs are not eligible. Furthermore, the program does not reimburse monies already spent.

    Organisations receiving funds cannot receive more than $500 per calendar year.
    Jumpstart reserves the right to audit all requests for assistance.

  • Healthy Tips

    Go on a treasure hunt.

    Here’s a great way to keep the family fit and teach your kids about trust, teamwork, and problem solving at the same time. Take them to a local park and set an expedition course on a map, circling various “checkpoints.” Take turns navigating to each point on the map and leading the team to each destination. “Start out with an easy course in an open park and then progress to a trail system. Stay together and explore terrain features, study map clues, and look for the secret treasure.” Sound too complicated? Then merely go hunting for bugs, animals, or flowers. You can’t entertain a young kid much better than finding a colorful salamander under a log or rock.
