Jump Start Grant

Jump Start Grant

Westwood is the proud recipient of a Jump Start grant from Canadian Tire!

In September, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced an $8 million sport relief fund to help sport and recreation organizations continue to deliver programming in 2020 and beyond. 

As you may be aware, many community organizations have shut their doors due to the financial burden created by COVID-19, including lost revenue and increased program costs. Westwood has experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.  

We recently received confirmation that we are amongst 668 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know how positive an 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 keep the students at Westwood active, and find innovative new ways for them to participate in sport, while ensuring that all public measures are observed.

Stay tuned to Westwood's website and social media in the coming months to see the impact that this grant will have!
