The Royal Life Saving Society of Canada operates throughout Canada as the Lifesaving Society. The Lifesaving Society is a national, volunteer and charitable organization and registered charity composed of 10 provincial/territorial Branches, tens of thousands of individual members, and over 4,000 affiliated swimming pools, waterfronts, schools and clubs. The Society works to prevent drowning and water-related injury through its training programs, Water Smart public education, drowning prevention research, safety management and lifesaving sport.
The Royal Life Saving Society arrived in Canada in 1894 with its Honorary Representative, Arthur Lewis Cochrane who joined the faculty of Upper Canada College as a “Drill Instructor”. The Life Saving Society became formalized with the establishment of the Ontario Branch in 1908 as the first Canadian branch of the Royal Life Saving Society UK.
