The CIBC Theatre for All program helps Kids Up Front offices across Canada give deserving children and youth the gift of experiencing a live arts production like theatre, dance, opera or the symphony.

Exposure to arts and culture has many benefits. It can expand a child’s horizon and inspire dreams and hope for their future. Arts and cultural performances can help develop young minds, nurture creativity and encourage a long-lasting connection with the arts. It also allows children, youth and their family to be included in the arts and culture community.

CIBC is Kids Up Front’s valued corporate partner in providing access and promoting arts and culture. With their financial support, we are able to give our communities young people access to new experiences and expose them to the benefits of arts and culture.

You should warn people in advance about how great the seats are. The boys’ and girls’ jaws dropped and it took them one full period before they could recover from the shock of their good fortune. They absolutely adored the experience. One kid, in particular, born of a rather dysfunctional and impoverished family, and who considers the Leafs to be his RELIGION, was almost in tears of joy. Thank you and to the donors for providing such profound experience for the youth (and for me too!).

When I contacted a family and offered them the opportunity to go to a Hitmen game, they were most pleased. They shared that they can never give their family this opportunity because they cannot afford to send all 8 of their children to events. When I told the children, they jumped for joy saying they have never been to a game before. They were so excited to return to the school and tell me all about their day at the Hitmen game. This excitement is exactly why we love this partnership.

Calgary School, Social Support Worker

He had never been to a hockey game. We simply could not spend the money to buy tickets for ourselves. Thanks to Kids Up Front, he was able to attend a game with his community support aide person and had an absolutely wonderful time. He has been talking about hockey ever since and has even started to take ice skating lessons which he loves.
