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.
"Whomsoever you see in distress, recognize in them a fellow
human being" is the modern interpretation of the Lifesaving
Society's Latin motto Quemcunque miserum videris hominem
scias, from a play by 1st-century Roman philosopher (and tutor
to Nero) Lucius Annæus Seneca.
