Jumpstart Sports Relief Fund

The Dorado Stars Swim Club receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant

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 Dorado Stars Swim Club and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.  

We 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 continue to offer quality programming for new and returning swimmers, while teaching community values.  The Dorado Stars Swim Club has a rich history in Caledon and we are grateful to have been offered this Grant to help us improve our program to help serve more of our community.
