About Us: Learn For Life

Skills learned in lifesaving, lifeguarding and first aid courses last a lifetime. Take your training with the Lifesaving Society - a national charitable organization that works to prevent drowning and water-related injury through its training programs, Water Smart public education, aquatic safety management services, drowning research and lifesaving sport.

We are a leader and partner in the delivery of water safety education throughout Canada and around the world as a member of the Royal Life Saving Society Commonwealth and the Canadian representative in the International Lifesaving Federation.

Annually over 1.5 million Canadians participate in Lifesaving Society swimming, lifesaving, lifeguard and leadership programs. As Canada’s lifeguarding experts, we set the standard for lifeguard training and certify all of Canada’s National Lifeguards.
