Child Car Seat History

Child Car seats in Canada have come a very long way from only the 1960’s. Parents would bring home their new babies on their laps while driving home from the hospital.


It was not until the 1980’s that child car seats would be required by law. Since the child car seat was introduced the laws has changed in many ways and along with it so has the car seat itself, from weight and height restrictions to all the different types of car seats.


Now a days not having the proper child car seat or incorrectly using a car seat can result in a hefty fine and point all throughout Canada. Many injuries and deaths in children are caused by the lack of knowledge with child car seats.
