  2. The requirement that all Officials, Coaches and Volunteers wear Government of Canada approved PFDs while on the water. 
  3. The direction that Clubs must be compliant with relevant worker safety regulations related to water safety and drowning prevention in their Province or Territory, and ensure that their staff are compliant where applicable.
