The Lifesaving Society welcomes the opportunity to work with you
should you choose to transition to our training programs.
The Lifesaving Society appreciates the confidence Red Cross has
expressed in us and we intend to seize this unique opportunity to
become better still.
We hope more young Canadians will be encouraged to pursue the
great leadership development opportunities in becoming an aquatic
instructor, trainer or lifeguard.

the transition process for those who are not affiliates. In both
cases, a person-to-person conversation is the best way forward.
Let's talk - in person, on screen, or on the phone. We invite
you to contact us at your convenience. We'll explore features and
benefits of the Society's programs, answer your questions and
explore your concerns. Together, we'll walk through the steps for a
smooth and successful transition that works best for you.
