Nanaimo and Kelowna – we just posted your courses!
We want to bring child passenger safety training to more areas, and to do that, we need locations. We also need to know where you are! Please, fill out our course interest form and let us know. Can you host? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m close to confirming details for Campbell River and Richmond, BC. Add yourself to the list to be notified when the courses go live. I’m also especially keen to take this course into the interior of BC – Prince George? Cranbrook? Nelson? I know you have babies!

Herein lies a list of quick links to Canadian federal and provincial car seat laws. The use of car seats and boosters are governed in Canada by both federal and provincial regulations. Federal regulations, in general, set out rules for manufacturers and the types of car seats and boosters that may be produced and sold. Provincial regulations determine roles for drivers and how they must use car seats and boosters. Some provinces and territories list car seat laws in their Motor Vehicle Act (or similarly named legislation), but most place the specifics in a separate regulation document. This post deals solely with the regulations. Be prepared for some legalese!
