*Important notice regarding Red Cross Applications*
The Canadian Red Cross is winding down its swim and lifeguarding programming to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas.
During 2022, Red Cross is encouraging and supporting its water safety training partners in making the transition to the swimming, lifeguarding and aquatic leadership programs of the Lifesaving Society Canada. For more information, please visit: https://www.lifesavingsociety.com/swim-transition.aspx
EXPIRY DATE EXTENSION
To facilitate the transition, Red Cross has extended all Swimming & Water Safety and Lifeguard certifications to December 31, 2022 (if they would naturally expire before then).
TRANSFER OF RED CROSS CERTIFICATION DATA
With your permission, Red Cross will transfer your certification information to the Lifesaving Society. If you do not grant permission for this transfer, you will need to contact your Lifesaving Society provincial/territorial Branch for direction on how to provide proof of certification.
