The Lifesaving Society takes the COVID-19 crisis seriously and is responding to the government’s requests. In doing so, the Lifesaving Society reaffirms its commitment to ensuring the well-being and safety of all those involved in the pursuit of its mission.

This special section contains all the documentation related to COVID-19 for all aquatic personnel.



The Lifesaving Society offered webinars on working in an aquatic setting in the context of COVID-19 to all aquatic managers, NL instructors, lifeguards, lifeguard supervisors and aquatic coaches to prepare them for a safe return to work.

There are no more live webinars planned. You can watch them for free by clicking on the links below. Lifeguards who have not attended the webinars are invited to make arrangements with their aquatic manager. There will no longer be any mention in the members' files.


The Lifesaving Society is making these webinar resources available to you.
