Canadian Drowning Prevention Plan
The Canadian Drowning Prevention Plan was formally released at the World Conference on Drowning Prevention in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 17-19, 2017.
The Canadian Drowning Prevention Plan was developed as one of the four supporting strategies outlined in the World Health Organization’s: Preventing drowning: an implementation guide (May 2017), which was developed in response to the World Health Organization’s: Global Report on Drowning: Preventing a Leading Killer (2014). The Canadian Drowning Prevention Coalition, tasked with developing the Canadian Drowning Prevention Plan, was formed in response to a call to action from the World Health Organization’s report.
The aspirational long-term goal of the Plan is for zero drowning deaths in Canada in 50+ years. The Plan is dynamic and will reflect the progress of data, actions, and outcomes in key focus areas for drowning prevention.
