Jumpstart Funding

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart's biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need. The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams. Please come into our office to fill out a hard copy form, or fill out an online application.

KidSportTM Funding

At KidSportTM, they believe that no child should be left on the sidelines. They offer an opportunity for children to participate in the sport of their choice, in their own community, by providing grants to cover the registration fees of a season of organized sport, for families in financial need. All applications are kept strictly confidential, and most children do not know that they have received funding. You can get your application on line at www.sport.bc.ca or come in to our office and we have copies here! Call (250)362-2327 for more information.
