Canadian Tire Jumpstart helping Fort St. John children participate in recreational activities

“We see it as equipping kids for life because quality of physical activity in kids does more than improve health and well-being,” the organization said. “It helps build confidence, leadership, productivity and creativity.”

Children and parents select their own activities which reflect individual interests and physical needs. There are 73 different sports and recreational activities available for registration, everything from hockey and basketball to yoga and martial arts.

If you have a kid between the ages of 4-18 and would like learn more about financial assistance, call 250 787 9674 or email
