Not all lifesaving sport participants take part in competition, but for the majority who do, the Society offers annual provincial and national championships.

Canada's National Lifesaving Team and other Canadian teams also participate in international competitions like the International Life Saving Federation's biennial World Lifesaving Championships, or the Royal Life Saving Society's Commonwealth Lifesaving Championships. See Competition Calendar for dates and locations.

New Brunswick Championships rely on the support of volunteer officials to take on a multitude of roles.
