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.
"The Lifesaving Society advocates the mandatory wearing of
functional lifejackets/PFDs by operators and passengers of all
types of watercraft less than 5.5m without a cabin." (Lifesaving
Society Position Statement, May 1996)
