Para sport Jumpstart Fund

A joint program between the CPC and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, the goal of the Para sport Jumpstart Fund is to create greater opportunities for accessible sport and play. 

Since the Para sport Jumpstart Fund was first created in 2013, it has distributed approximately $2 million to community organizations. The program helped over 3,000 kids and youth with disabilities to play organized sport and be physically active in 2018.
