Annual Events

The Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch is always bustling with activities. We host a variety of events throughout the year to promote lifesaving, lifeguarding, and drowning prevention. We look forward to seeing there!

Annual General Meeting

The Lifesaving Society – Manitoba Branch traditionally hosts their Annual General Meeting in March. All members of the Branch are urged to attend and become involved in determining the future direction of lifesaving education and policy in the province. Elections for the Board of Directors also occur at this time. All active members including directors, committee members and examiners in good standing and affiliate members, over the age of 18, are eligible to vote.

Rescue and Honour Awards

Each year the Branch recognizes individuals who exemplify the spirit of the Lifesaving Society in saving lives. It takes considerable courage to help others in distress. The Branch acknowledges significant acts of bravery with its rescue awards. Any individual who has performed an aquatic rescue is eligible for a rescue award. The Branch encourages you to nominate your hero(s)!

Manitoba Lifeguard Competition

Lifeguard competitions are one of the best forms of professional development for lifeguards and are a fun way to practice skills. Competitions include a wide variety of activities such as first aid, water rescue, victim assessment, relays and emergency situations.
