Transition from the Canadian Red Cross to the Lifesaving Society

The Canadian Red Cross has decided to wind down its involvement in all swim and lifeguard programming across Canada in order to direct more attention to surging humanitarian demands in other areas. As part of that decision, Red Cross worked closely with Lifesaving Society Prince Edward Island to ensure a smooth transition of the PEI Water Safety Day Camp program.

Returning participants can consult this conversion chart to help decide what level is appropriate to register their child.
