Making Waves Canada is an organization committed to improving the lives of
children with disabilities, by providing accessible swimming and water safety
instruction through our thirteen (and counting!) chapters across the country.

Since 2005, Making Waves Canada has helped over 2,000 children
learn how to swim.

We've partnered with Universities and passionate students across Canada to set up local chapters, each serving their community.
