Society’s research into drowning and water-related
injuries, rescue techniques and equipment. This,
combined with the knowledge and experience
gained from the Society’s participation in drowning

means the National Lifeguard program is regularly
reviewed and authoritatively revised.
NLS is the industry-recognized lifeguard standard in
Canada. The single NLS standard means employers

lifeguarding. Employers also know that the NLS
standard is supported by the Lifesaving Society’s
safety management services – aquatic safety
audits, aquatic safety standards, analysis and
interpretation of provincial regulation, inquests
and court case decisions, and expert witness
consultation. Importantly, employers know that the
Society is at their service in case of catastrophic
injury or fatality.
