One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport or recreation activities (Vision Critical 2011). That means that many kids are missing out.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation.
We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success in life.
They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. This is the power of Canadian Tire Jumpstart.

Strong communities include strong kids and at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka we believe every child should have a chance to participate in physical activity. Canadian Tire Jumpstart shares this belief.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart provides financial assistance to help kids participate in organized sport and recreation such as hockey, dance, soccer, swimming, etc. National in scope, but local in focus, Canadian Tire Jumpstart works through a network of community partners committed to helping kids get active.
Our Association is proud to be a community partner with Canadian Tire Jumpstart, increasing opportunities for kids from the communities we serve to participate in sport and recreation, and get active and healthy.
Thank you Canadian Tire Jumpstart for your commitment to building healthy communities, and choosing our YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka as a community partner.
