PROVIDING ONE LITTLE TICKET, ONE BIG LIFT!

Can’t Use Your Ticket?

When you can’t use your tickets, we can! The ‘Can’t Use Your Ticket’ program is our signature program. Having seats sit empty at any event is a lost opportunity for a child in need – so why not consider donating your tickets to Kids Up Front Ottawa?!

Kids Up Front Ottawa redistributes your donated tickets fairly and efficiently through our partnerships with local child-serving charitable agencies.  We currently partner with 30 child-serving groups, who offer programs and services to deserving children and youth in the Ottawa region.

CIBC Theatre For All

CIBC Theatre for All enables Kids Up Front to remove barriers and give underserved kids the gift of experiencing a live arts production – theatre, dance, opera or symphony.

With this initiative, CIBC becomes Kids Up Front Canada’s primary corporate partner in providing access to live arts performances.

TD Noteworthy

We believe that all young people should be able to experience the magic of live musical performances to enhance their education and their well-being.

Through TD’s generous financial support, many of Vancouver’s under-served kids will be able to establish relationships between music and an art form that could inspire them.

Shaw Newcomer Pass Program

When you’re new in town, nothing means more than having someone throw out the welcome mat. And nothing does a better job of that than the Shaw Newcomer Pass Program.

Kids Up Front Canada and Shaw Communications have teamed up to bring 20,000 new Canadians to world class events. Over the next two years, the Shaw Newcomer Pass Program will include and engage families new to Canada by connecting them to arts, culture and sport in Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
