The Canadian Tire Jumpstart Sponsorship Program is aimed at youth ages 4-18. This program helps kids become involved in a social setting, learn new life skills, and helps out the families who can’t afford to have their children in various extracurricular activities.
Children can be funded up to a maximum of $150 per sport/activity (up to $600 per child in a calendar year); subject to Chapter discretion and/or local demands.
There are no longer deadlines. All Jumpstart applications will be processed when received.
Cheques will only be issued to local Moose Jaw Sport Organizations, not to individuals. Once funding has been approved, Jumpstart will notify the organization that their participant(s) will be receiving funding, and then Jumpstart will issue the organization a cheque from their head office. All cheques should be received by the organizations approx. 4 weeks following the submission.
Be sure to notify the Organization that you have applied for your child to receive Jumpstart funding and give them the heads up as to the time frame for when they would be notified if your child was allocated funding.
