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. Contact your local municipal pool, Y, summer
camp, school, college or university.
In the latest national drowning data, not wearing a
PFD/lifejacket accounted for 82% of boating deaths (for which PFD
information was available).
