Water Safety Week

, is Water Safety Week, an annual campaign to educate Canadians on how to stay safe around water and prevent drowning incidents.

Canadian Red Cross is winding down its Swimming & Water Safety and Lifeguard training at the end of 2022 to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas – such as disaster, pandemic response, opioid harm reduction, and caregiving for seniors.
Canadian Red Cross is enormously proud of what we have accomplished in providing water safety education over the past 76 years and we are truly grateful to entire generations of staff and volunteers who dedicated themselves to creating a program of the highest standard.  
This year’s final summer water safety campaign provides us with the opportunity to celebrate the legacy of the program and to show our gratitude to the volunteers, Instructors, and Training Partners who have supported, delivered, and taught our program to Canadians across the country.  
Stay tuned to our Red Cross social media accounts during Water Safety Week (June 4-11) and throughout the summer to celebrate along with us:
