4 out of 5 child passenger seats are not installed correctly*. Here are some free materials for you to review your child's car seat safety (or help you install your new one).
  • The Co-operators have produced (in cooperation with the Infant and Toddler Safety Association) an instructional DVD entitled Car Seat Safety Check. This DVD walks you through the different stages of child car seats and boosters as well as other intricacies of car seat safety and proper installation. It has a great section on how to install using the Universal Anchorage System (also referred to as the LATCH system)
  • They are also offering a free growth chart, request this in the email as well.
  1. The Co-Operators/Buckle Up Bears program offers online videos and PDFs on booster seat safety. View or download them here (http://www.cooperators.ca/en/aboutus/community/2_3_1.html).
Keep in mind that your local transportation authorities may also provide free seminars. In BC they are offered by the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation and ICBC, and is by appointment only on specific dates. A list of dates and locations throughout the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, North Central, Southern Interior, and Vancouver Island can be found on the BCCA TSF website (http://www.tsfbcaa.com). More info: ICBC Child Seat Information (British Columbia)

    Thanks for this information. And, I don’t mean to freak anybody out, but check out this video on You Tube. It’s why you should ONLY use a 5 point harness booster seat.
