The Lifesaving Society is a National, non-profit, voluntary organization that has been training swimmers to be lifesavers and lifeguards since 1908. We are dedicated to the prevention of water-related incidents and the saving of life in aquatic environments across Canada. We are a member of the RLSS Commonwealth Organization and the Canadian representative to the International Life Saving Federation.

The society’s mission is to┬áprevent drownings and aquatic related incidents for Canadians by public education and program education.
