Upcoming Changes to Swimming Lessons

Starting January 2023, the City of Port Coquitlam will transition from offering Canadian Red Cross Water Safety Programs to offering the Lifesaving Society of Canada’s Swim for Life program. Canadian Red Cross is winding down its swim and lifeguarding programming to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas. The City thanks them for their years of support and wishes them all the best in their important humanitarian work around the globe.
