54th AGM via Go-To-Webinar

We invite participants at our AGM webinar (Saturday, April 30 at 3:00 p.m.) to preview the agenda and related documents:


National Lifeguard update

The Lifesaving Society has updated the National Lifeguard program following a review to ensure its curriculum and performance standards remain current, relevant and grounded in the competencies required by lifeguards. Read about the key changes.


In New Brunswick, National Lifeguard Instructors must attend a National Lifeguard Update Clinic. The clinic is mandatory and is worth 3 credits towards your leadership recertification. The first available clinic is scheduled November 5, 2022 at the University of Moncton. Contact the Society to register.


Updated Bronze medal awards

The Lifesaving Society is excited to announce the official release of the revised Bronze medal awards! The update improves skill progressions for a seamless flow into National Lifeguard and sets candidates up for success as they move through the Society's lifesaving, assistant lifeguard and lifeguard continuum.
