COMMUNITY SPACES

HOW WE GIVE

In an average year, less than half of youth ages 5 to 14 regularly play sports. We know that youth facing barriers need quality places to engage in sport and recreation. When youth feel proud and invested in the places they play, they are more likely to get moving. We also know that for families facing socio-economic insecurity, paying for recreation opportunities is often not possible and many neighbourhoods lack quality play spaces that meet the needs of the community.

MLSE Foundation and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities work together to refurbish athletic facilities, creating more opportunities for youth to get moving in their communities. Our goal is to build equity through the power of sport by empowering communities to reimagine their play spaces.

Do you have a project we should consider? We would love to hear about it.
