Car crashes are a leading cause of death and injury to children in Canada. Children are well protected and less likely to be severely injured when the right car seat, booster seat or seat belt is used on every ride. Using the right car seat in the right way can reduce the risk of injury by up to 82 per cent and risk of death by up to 71 per cent.
Choose the right car seat or booster seat for your child and make sure it’s used properly for every single ride.
Before moving your child into a new car seat or booster seat stage, it’s important to consider your child’s height, weight, age and to consider their development.
Before installing a new car seat, read both the car seat manual and the vehicle manual carefully.
