Daily Themes & Water Safety Messages

  • Sunday: Drowning is Preventable. Approximately 500 Canadians die in preventable water-related incidents annually. Even one drowning is one too many.
  • Monday: Watch me, not your phone. Always directly supervise children around the water – if you’re not within arms’ reach, you’ve gone too far.
  • Tuesday: Be Boat Smart – Wear a Lifejacket. Choose It. Use It. Always wear a lifejacket or PFD when in a boat.
  • Wednesday: Learn to Swim to Survive. In most drownings, the victim never intended to go in the water and was often close to safety – could you survive a sudden and unexpected fall into the water?
  • Thursday: Swim with a buddy. Make smart choices before going into or out on the water.
  • Friday: Know your limits. Alcohol consumption is a factor in almost 40% of boating-related fatalities. Both alcohol and cannabis use impairs judgment, reflexes and balance. Stay sober when in, on or around the water.
  • Saturday: Be Water Smart all year round. You can save a life, yours and someone else’s. Take a learn-to-swim, lifesaving or first aid class today.
