The Complainant is a well-known charitable organization that works to prevent drowning and water-related injuries through its training programs in Canada. It owns the SWIM FOR LIFE registered trademark in Canada (prior to the Registrant's registration of the Domain Name). In 2012, the Registrant developed a swimming program to teach children how to swim (in Quebec), and registered and has been using the Domain Name along with NAGER POUR LA VIE AVEV KARINA RENAUD (or SWIM FOR LIFE WITH KARINA RENAUD in English).
The Panel found that the Registrant registered the Domain Name in good faith, and also registered nagerpourlavie.ca (and the .com) at the same time, she incorporated her business, and she used SWIM FOR LIFE between 2012 - 2020 without misleading visitors of her website.
