Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program

“PEI Chapter” Canadian Tire JumpStart™

The way we see it, the answer to “Can I play?” should always be yes. Canadian Tire JumpStart™ is a charitable program created by the Canadian Tire Charities to help kids in need participate in organized sports and recreation. National in scope but local in its focus, Canadian Tire JumpStart helps kids in need to participate by providing funds to help offset the cost of registration fees and equipment. [ More ]

Recreation and sport activities make a significant contribution to how children develop – both physically and mentally. HIGH FIVE® is Canada’s only comprehensive quality standard for organizations providing recreation and sport programs to children aged 6 to 12. [ More ]

Facility Safety

PEI Tobacco Free Program

Tobacco Free Sport & Recreation

Recreation PEI is dedicated to promoting safe facilities for all to enjoy. Since 2006, we’ve participated in tobacco-free sport & recreation initiatives during which a number of helpful materials were developed to assist in the creation of tobacco-free policies. Your team, town council, board of management, or other groups are welcome to use these resources to create your own tobacco-free team policy or facility.

AED Program

Automatic External Defibrillation units (AED’s) in Recreation Facilities

Trained people using Automatic External Defibrillation Units (AED’s) in conjunction with CPR save lives.

Healthy Rink Initiative Program

Healthy Rink Initiative

The Healthy Rink Initiative is a project designed to ensure that arenas on PEI are fun, safe and healthy environments for all Islanders. This initiative is the result of a societal move to ensure that public places are providing healthy experiences and choices for all citizens. Schools, communities, and businesses are all involved in this movement at varying levels. Recreation PEI and the provincial government though its Sport, Recreation and Healthy Living Division work with Island rinks to improve the event-going experience for participants and spectators alike.

Playground Safety Program

Playground Safety

The Active & Safe Program provides Free Playground Inspections all across PEI. Participants receive a free inspection by a Canadian Certified Playground Inspector [CCPI] through the Canadian Park and Recreation Association [CPRA].

As part of the Active & Safe Program we also work with individual facilities to develop Playground Safety Policies based on their needs. We have a number of sample policies available for schools, daycares, and communities to adopt or can help custom develop a playground policy that fits specific needs based on budget, staffing, equipment, etc. [ More ]
