Choosing, Installing and Using Infant and Child Car Seats – Helping to Keep Kids Safe

The information contained on this page has been obtained from the BCAA’s Child Passenger Safety Program. This program provides information and resources to keep your children safe while travelling on BC roads. Child car seats and seat belts work best when they are used correctly. As children grow and change, the type of protection system required also changes.

The information below will help guide you in choosing, installing and using either an infant seat, child seat or booster seat.
