Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart Charities is dedicated to removing financial barriers that prevent children across Canada from participating in quality physical activities.  One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their children in organized sports. Jumpstart helps these families by providing funding for registration fees, equipment and/or transportation for over 70 different activities. In addition to enabling participation in high-profile sports like hockey, soccer and swimming, Jumpstart helps children take dance lessons and martial arts classes, play ringette, or take part in several dozen other activities.  Jumpstart supports children between the ages of four and 18. Families must meet financial need criteria in order to qualify for funding. Applications for assistance can be submitted from January 15 to November 1, and can be completed at http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en/. For additional information, please call 1-844-YES-PLAY.
