Water Safety Grants
To assist NWT Communities, the NWTRPA is funding Water Safety grants to underline safety around bodies of water, where there is a risk of injury or drowning.
Two categories of grants are available: Water Smart® Learning & Swim to Survive®.
Swim to Survive®
Swim to Survive® grants are available to assist organisations in hosting one Swim to Survive® event at a Regional Aquatics Training Centre in either, Inuvik, Yellowknife, Fort Smith or Hay River. Participants will learn the basic skills needed to survive a fall into deep water taught by a certified Swim to Survive® instructor.
Water Safety Grants are now open! Applications will be accepted until October 1, 2023.
Funds are limited. Applications will be approved on a first-come, first-serve basis.
