National Drowning Prevention Week 2022

Annually the Lifesaving Society recognizes the third full week of July as National Drowning Prevention Week to focus attention on the serious issue of drowning.  This year National Drowning Prevention Week 2022 will take place July 17 – 23, 2022.

During this time we ask all Society Affiliates, members and supporters to organize, participate in, or support an activity or event that helps the public stay safe in, on, and around the water.  Some ideas for events you could run include:

  • Colouring/Drawing Contest on Water Smart Themes
  • Lifeguard Safety Demonstrations
  • Swim to Survive Challenge
  • Water Safety Day/Festival

Resources are available on our website:

If you have questions about National Drowning Prevention Week, or require assistance in setting up an event, please contact Christopher Love, Water Smart & Safety Management Coordinator, via e-mail or at 204-956-2124 ext 3.
