Lifesaving Society Swimming & Lifesaving Programs

Basic swimming ability is a fundamental requirement in any meaningful attempt to eliminate drowning in Canada.  The Lifesaving Society offers training programs from learn-to-swim through advanced lifesaving, lifeguarding and leadership. The Lifesaving Society Swim Program features both Swim for Life® and Canadian Swim Patrol - a recipe for creating good swimmers.

Good swimmers can:

  • Make safe choices in, on and around water and ice
  • Protect themselves and others
  • Swim for fitness
  • Enjoy other aquatic activities (boating, fishing, snorkeling, etc.)
  • Explore aquatic sports (Lifesaving Sport, swim club, synchronized swimming, diving, etc.)
  • Become Swim and/or Lifesaving Instructors and National Lifeguards
