Canadian Tire Jumpstart - Leduc Chapter
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national program that helps kids from ages 4-18 years old participate in organized sports and recreation. For eligible children, it covers registration, equipment, and/or transportation costs. Through Canadian Tire Jumpstart, some children get the chance to experience a sport for the first time. Others get the boost they need to continue with an activity they love.
Each child is eligible for a maximum total of $300 per funding session. This means if your child's sport/activity/equipment costs $150, they're eligible to receive another $150 to put towards another sport or activity. There are 2 funding sessions per year: Jan 15-June 15 and July 15-Nov 15.
The Leduc Chapter of the program provides funding for all eligible residents within the Leduc County boundaries. Major community partners include: City of Leduc, Leduc County, Beaumont, Calmar, Devon, Thorsby, Warburg, the Leduc and District Food Bank, Boys and Girls Club - Leduc, Black Gold Regional Schools and St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Schools.
