Attention all aspiring lifeguards!

Vaughan now conducting wet interviews for lifeguard and instructor positions

Last week, the Recreation and Culture department’s aquatic team, in partnership with other York Region municipalities, hosted #YRACspringthing2015 at the Vellore Village Community Centre. More than 150 lifeguards, instructors and aquatic staff from municipalities across the GTA and beyond participated in wet and dry professional development workshops.
