Who We Are & What We Do

We are Canada’s Drowning Prevention Charity, 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. You may know us as the Royal Life Saving Society. We are a leader and partner in the delivery of water safety education throughout Canada and around the world.

Despite our best efforts at prevention, countless injuries and an average of 75 lives are lost each year in British Columbia and the Yukon. When these incidents and tragedies occur and you are looking for authoritative comments, related statistics and the preventative tips, we are here for you.
