Pool Admission Standards
A drowning occurred when a group of young children were unsupervised by their attendants in a supervised public pool facility. A coroner's investigation into the matter noted that if the attendants had stayed and supervised the young children, the drowning may not have occurred. In response to this event, the Coroner's Office, along with numerous stakeholders, developed Admission Standards to prevent such tragedies in the future.
CIPHI, Ontario Branch, has addressed a letter to the MOHLTC endorsing the inclusion of the revised Admission Standards for Public Pools in Regulation 565 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, making these standards mandatory across the province.
