During 2022, the Canadian Red Cross wound down its swim and
lifeguarding programming to focus on surging humanitarian demands
in other areas - such as disaster and pandemic response, opioid
harm reduction and caregiving for seniors.
Red Cross encouraged and supported its water safety
training partners in making the transition to the programs of the
Lifesaving Society Canada.
