Canadian Tire and Cape Breton / Victoria Counties Chapter JumpStart Participant Funding Program


One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their children in sport or recreation activities (Vision Critical 2011). That means that many children are missing out on the opportunity to enjoy recreational activity, physical fitness, and social interaction while promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Canadian Tire and CBRM/Victoria County JumpStart is dedicated to removing barrier…s, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation.

We see it as equipping children 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 and develop self-esteem. They also learn leadership skills which they will carry through life. Their lives become richer through sport and recreation activities. This is the power of Canadian Tire and CBRM/Victoria Counties JumpStart Program.

We believe that the answer to, “Can I Play?” should always be “Yes!
