The creators of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program believe that every kid should have a chance to become involved in an extracurricular activity without lack of money being a factor in the failure of their hopes and dreams. The Jump Start Program permits kids 4-18 to choose a sport or recreational activity they are interested in and have the cost of their equipment, registration and transportation supported.
