Lifesaving Society First Aid awards are offered by thousands of
Affiliate Members across the country, and often used as a First Aid
employment standard. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the Society's
Standard First Aid certification is recognized under the
Occupational Health and Safety Act for workplace first aid training
requirements. No water required: use Lifesaving Society first aid
awards to train your non-aquatic staff - playground, camp,
maintenance - as well as the general public.

Update to CPR and First Aid Guidelines (June 2022)
Every five years, the International Liaison Committee on
Resuscitation (ILCOR) reviews the latest science on first aid and
resuscitation and updates treatment recommendations as necessary.
The Lifesaving Society and its fellow national training agencies
review the recommendations and agree upon a consistent
interpretation and consensus in the guidelines for Canada. Our
current program incorporates these recommendations.
We have updated our programs to include the 2020
recommendations, which are minor and do not affect the Society's
test items or "Must Sees." Importantly, there are no changes to the
resuscitation standards for drowning victims. Your existing
training remains effective in saving lives.
