Jumpstart/RecKids Program

Jumpstart/RecKids Logo

Working together to provide recreation opportunities to children, youth, and families in financial need.

The Jumpstart/RecKids Program is a joint effort between HRM Parks & Recreation and the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program. 

Jumpstart is designed to provide assistance to those who, due to lack of funds, would otherwise be unable to participate in sport, art, cultural, and recreation activities.


At this time, HRM supports registered non-profit organizations only.
