Learn to Swim

The City of Ottawa’s goal is to offer you and your children the highest possible quality of swimming lessons.

Private Swim Lessons are also available and are designed to assist children to overcome a fear of the water or master a skill. A certified instructor will work on a one-to-one basis.
