Recruiting certified lifeguards has been a challenge in Kitimat but, through ongoing free lifeguard training programs, Kitimat Leisure Services continues to maintain its regular operating hours at the aquatic centre.

However, staff limitations are impacting the ability to operate the two community wading pools.

Because of these challenges, the difficult decision has been made to not operate the wading pools through the summer.

While we regret we cannot offer this service this summer, we highly encourage you to let any friends or family know about future opportunities to take lifeguard training through Kitimat Leisure Services. Inquire further at 250-632-8955, and visit our careers page at
