The Lifesaving Society Canada is the sanctioning body for Canadian competitions. There are numerous benefits to running a sanctioned competition at the provincial or national level. It’s the society’s recommendation that athletes, coaches, managers and officials only participate in lifesaving competitions that have been sanctioned by the Lifesaving Society.

For sanctioning information in your province, please contact your branch of the Lifesaving Society.

If you’re interested in having an event sanctioned by the Lifesaving Society Canada sport commission, please see the documents below. It’s recommended that provincial / branch championships and, where appropriate, time trials be sanctioned by LSC.

If a Canadian or world record has been set at sanctioned competition, the meet manager and chief referee must submit the application below to the Lifesaving Society Canada sport commission for endorsement.
