Water Safety and Survival School Debuts a New Location in Ottawa

Ottawa, CanadaBritish Swim School, best known for its education of water safety as an essential survival skill amongst a fun and gentle environment, continues to push its international expansion with a new pool location in Ottawa, Canada. The pool has been open to the public as of March 2019, and was acknowledged through a grand opening celebration on April 20th at the Homewood Suites Ottawa Airport Hotel in Ottawa, Canada. Additionally, the Deputy Mayor of Ottawa, George Darouze, was in attendance for the ribbon cutting.

This now-open addition will be run by first-time franchisee, Anita Mushitsi. Anita joined the British Swim School brand after serving for the government of Canada for the last 18 years where she was mainly managing communications for major policy announcements. Her grand opening festivities included family-friendly activities such as raffles with prizes, balloon twister, a temporary tattoo artist and more. Additionally, families who attended will receive 25 percent off their tuition for the first eight weeks of enrollment (membership fee still applies) and a British Swim School swim cap.

“I knew I wanted to open my own British Swim School franchise because of their focus on water safety and survival skills,” said British Swim School franchisee, Anita Mushitsi. “It is an honor and a privilege to be able to bring to our Ottawa community, a concept that I know will help save lives.”

British Swim School offers a two-step curriculum teaching children and adults of all ages, some as young as three months, water safety and survival skills, along with swimming skill development. While parental supervision is always the number one safety measure, research shows that participation in formal swim programs can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning.

The British Swim School franchise concept operates a unique water safety program with teaching methods that serve as a trademark for the brand. The company offers lessons out of multiple national fitness chains and hotel pools year-round, based on the premise that children progress at different rates. Each child, regardless of age, is placed in their correct skill level and will have certain achievable objectives.

British Swim School Ottawa is located at 3605 Paul Anka Drive, Ottawa, Canada. For more information about British Swim School in Ottawa, please visit
