National Drowning Prevention Week

Lifesaving Society Canada is gearing up for National Drowning Prevention Week 2024! National Drowning Prevention Week (NDPW) is a week of media and public awareness events focused on drowning prevention. It takes place in mid-July each year when drowning rates are highest in Canada. This year, NDPW 2024 will take place from July 21-27, 2024. NDPW 2024 will also include World Drowning Prevention Day on July 25, 2024.

We invite you to join us July 21-27, 2024, in sharing messages and doing activities that promote safety in, on and around water while working toward a Canada free from drowning and water-related injury. In addition to regular NDPW activities, this year we encourage you to reach outside your doors to build a partnership with a community organization, business, foundation, group, etc. that could benefit from drowning prevention messaging, especially those at highest risk of drowning.
