Since 1909, the Lifesaving Society develops course content that is adapted to Quebec’s realities, taking into account the many types of environments in which drownings can occur. Our Swim Patrol, Bronze Star, Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross and National Lifeguard – Pool courses are part of the aquatic continuum offered in most public pools on the Quebec territory; we also offer lifeguarding courses in natural environments, including waterfront, surf and swift water environments.

Some courses are recognized throughout Canada, and sometimes even in several other countries, as the Lifesaving Society is a member of the International Life Saving Federation (ILS).

The Lifesaving Society’s courses are developed with the help of several volunteers:
