Red Cross Training Partners

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.


For Red Cross training partners, instructors, lifeguards and trainers who wish to take advantage of this transition opportunity, please know that it is the intention of both organizations to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The process for Red Cross Water Safety Training Partners who are already Affiliate Members of the Society is slightly different than 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.
