Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is committed to ensuring kids in need have equal access to sport and recreation. Jumpstart helps eligible families cover the costs of registration, transportation, and equipment, and provides funding to selected organizations for recreational infrastructure and programming. Since 2005, Jumpstart has disbursed more than $225 million to help over 3 million kids and counting.

Like Jumpstart, we understand the importance of sport for the health and well-being of kids, and are proud of the work we do to provide sport and play for the community. With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to enhance our programming within the amateur sport realm, ensuring that sports and a career remain an accessible space for all. This funding will enable us to develop and offer a wider range of programs. Moreover, Jumpstart’s support will allow us to continue operating and serving our Sport lovers effectively. Their commitment to making sports accessible aligns perfectly with our mission, and we are grateful for the opportunity to further this important work together.

Emerging BIPOC Leaders Applications are now open!

Group of people

Join us for the 2nd Annual Diversity in Sport Conference and be a part of the Emerging BIPOC Leaders program! In addition to networking; this program will be highlighting the voices of future BIPOC leaders in sport.

We believe that having young leaders at the conference is crucial. Your presence is not only essential but also integral to our mission of promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within sport from coast to coast to coast. By actively inviting and highlighting up-and-coming BIPOC voices, we aim to create a space where diverse perspectives are valued and celebrated.

As an emerging leader, you’ll have the opportunity to bring invaluable insights, experiences, and innovative ideas to the table, enriching the discussions and paving the way for tangible progress in addressing systemic inequities in sports.

Applications for the Emerging BIPOC Leaders portion of the conference are now closed. Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you next year at the 3rd Annual Diversity in Sport Conference 2025.
