The incident happened near the Palliser Regional Park shoreline at about 11 a.m. on Canada Day.
Police and conservation officers recovered the body and confirmed it was the 36-year-old man from Central Butte who did not resurface after helping his children out of the water and into a boat, before disappearing.
RCMP say the family has been notified and his name will not be released.
