Swimming in Canada

Swimming can be found at most recreation centres, gyms and in some hotels.

During the summer months it is possible to swim in many lakes and also in the sea on either coast. Be aware of any signs indicating where swimming is or is not allowed.

During the spring, while the lakes are still frozen over, it is not uncommon to see local people cutting a hole in the ice and jumping in as part of their annual 'polar bear dip'.

The New Year Polar Bear Swim in English Bay in Vancouver is the longest running.
