Funding Opportunities
February 22, 2021

To our valued local sport organizations,


We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy, as we are now well into 2021. We are reaching out today, as we are excited to be passing along a couple of funding opportunities that have recently opened.


  1. Canadian Tire Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund

This 12 million dollar program has two streams for eligible organizations to apply for and has a spring, summer, and fall intake, with the spring intake closing on February 25, 2021.


You may recall this same program was also offered last fall and at that time, we were able to help a London sport organization receive $10,000 through this program so we encourage all to apply. For more information or to begin your application, please visit


  1. MLSE Foundation’s Community Action Grant

This program awards up to $50,000 to organizations that are creating positive outcomes for youth in physical health, mental health, academic achievement and work readiness. Organizations that are interested in applying for the MLSE Foundation Community Action Grant are encouraged to do so by clicking on the following link:


If you have any further questions around either of these grants, or if you require assistance applying, please contact Jeremy Hick ( or Zanth Jarvis ( at Tourism London, or feel free to contact the organizations directly at:


Thanks, and we look forward to working with you all again when it is safe to do so!
