Mississauga Blues Receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant

  • May 29,2021

Along with Jumpstart, we understand the role sport plays in the health and well-being of kids and their families and are doing everything possible to help community sports continue.

Last year, with the support of CTC, Jumpstart Charities disbursed $8 million through its Sport Relief Fund, fulfilling nearly 700 grant applications, to help organizations continue to operate through 2020.

With Canadian Tire Corporation’s commitment of an additional $12 million to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund in 2021, together, we’ll help build back communities through sport and play.

As one of over 500 sport and recreation organizations across Canada to receive grant funding from the latest round of support from Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund this year, the continued need for support is apparent.

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to recover, reset and rebuild after the challenges we have faced due to COVID-19. 

These funds will help us run our programming in a world with new restrictions and guidelines while also helping us offer an affordable options for youth to stay active. Once allowed, we will use these funds to offer several Try Rugby days in an effort to introduce rugby to a wider range of people within our community.
