About Masters Swimming Canada

Masters Swimming Canada was founded in 1971.

It all began with fitness and competitive swimming programs for adults. Since then, MSC has worked in collaboration with partners, provincials organizations and over 250 Masters club to become one of Canada's largest adult fitness population: 10,000 members aged 18 to 105 are registered and participate in activities offered by MSC and its partners.

Our Values

Fun and Friendship, Health and Wellness, and Participation and Achievement

  • Fun and Friendship
    We encourage camaraderie in and out of the pool and the fun that goes along with it. We want members to feel as though they are part of a community, either within their club, provincially or nationally.
  • Health and Wellness
    We recognize that living a healthy lifestyle is just as important outside of the pool as a swimmer’s practice in the water. We are committed to inspiring individuals to become active participants in their health.
  • Participation and Achievement
    We believe in fostering a supportive environment that allows swimmers to challenge themselves and exceed their expectations in competition or in a recreational capacity.
