The minimum age to enter a Montreal city pool alone has been raised to eight years old, part of an effort to make swimming safer.
The minimum age used to be six – and prior to 2017, there was no minimum age, only a height requirement.
Children must also meet a minimum height of 15 centimetres taller than the deepest part of the pool’s shallow end, and could be asked to pass a swimming test.
