The Lifesaving Society's aquatic safety accreditation program is designed to recognize those facilities that meet a recognized operating standard. This program is designed to enhance public safety and reduce the risk of water-related incidents in aquatic facilities. Facilities that are successful in their inspection process may apply for accreditation.

The Lifesaving Society will award its Accredited Facility certificate, mounted on a wall plaque, after the Society receives the original inspection report with the accreditation fee.

Facilities are invited to renew their accreditation regularly. From their last accreditation, we recommend facilities apply for re-accreditation no more than: one year for seasonal facilities (i.e., summer-only facilities) and two years for year-round facilities. Accreditation and re-accreditation dates are noted on the Accredited Facility plaque.

Affiliates may renew their accreditation by being re-inspected and forwarding their inspection report with the accreditation fee to the Lifesaving Society. The renewal fee is the same as a first time accreditation fee.
