Dear Jumpstart Community Partner,
On September 19, Canadian Tire announced an industry-leading commitment of $50 million over a five-year period to its Jumpstart Charities for Jumpstart’s Play Finds A Way movement, which will help remove barriers to sport and play for kids with disabilities. One of the key programs within Play Finds A Way is the Jumpstart Accessibility Grants, which are intended for construction and renovations to improve accessibility to recreation facilities such as rinks, pools and community centres in communities across Canada.
Jumpstart Accessibility Grants offer two funding streams: Accessibility-Enabling Grants, which provide eligible facilities with up to $50,000 for projects to adapt and enhance existing facilities, and Inclusive Design Innovation Grants, which provide between $250,000 and $1,000,000 for projects designed to uniquely enhance sport and recreation spaces with innovative solutions.
We are excited to share with you that grant applications for both funding streams are now open for eligible organizations until March 16, 2018 and we encourage you to share with your contacts.

Thank you for your continued support of Jumpstart’s Play Finds a Way movement!
President, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities
