Jumpstart

Regina Public Schools: Official Community Partner to Canadian Tire Jumpstart
Our Students, Our Community, Our Support

What is Jumpstart?

Jumpstart is about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbors, their classmates and their friends.  Whether it's the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favorite one, no kid should be left out.  The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

What Does Being a Community Partner Mean?

Regina Public Schools students are able to receive individual funding to participate in community and school sport and recreation activities.  With the support of schools, students who need individual funding support can be identified for registrations fees, equipment and/or transportation.  Schools also have the opportunity to create Community Development Programs through a grant process to support larger numbers of students.  As well as a partner, schools can also consider fundraising events for Canadian Tire Jumpstart where the money raised stays locally and within the school division.
