The Embassy of Canada contributing to Water Safety in the Dominican Republic

by Derek Champoux, 6 years ago

It is a pleasure for us to once again reaffirm our commitment in regards to water safety in the Dominican Republic.  For the fourth year running, the Office of the Embassy of Canada in Punta Cana with the support of the volunteer instructors from the Royal Nova Scotia Lifesaving Society will be offering its Lifesaving Program free of charge for the participants.  This program aims to train tourism industry employees in water rescue techniques and first aid.  To date, over 200 adults and 40 children in Punta Cana and a total of 600 people in the Dominican Republic have participated in our programs and the number of lives that have been impacted is immeasurable.

  • Royal Nova Scotia Lifesaving Society
  • Occidental Grand Punta Cana
  • Go Golf Tours
  • Macao Surf Camp
  • S-Trip!
