In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport
Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada.
Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted
current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. The Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club
and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
The Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club recently received confirmation that we will be provided with grant
support through the last round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. In 2021, Jumpstart has now disbursed funding
to more than 1,200 organizations across Canada through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond
grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations,
and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to:
- Replace, upgrade and supplement our worn-out, vandalized and insufficient equipment to help more children play Canada’s National summer sport in our catchment areas;
- Purchase new equipment for out-reach programs to encourage more children to get & stay active with and experience a unique part of indigenous and Canadian culture;
- Replenish & augment our Player-Support Fund and related equipment to assist families in our catchment areas in need of financial support to participate in the various House-League, Rep and Non-Rep programs we offer;

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented pressure on amateur/minor sports organizations of all stripes, and, without the financial support of Jumpstart, the long-term impacts on children and society will be magnified.
