While in Victoria, does your child require a car seat?
Check your childs’ weight to ensure that they are in the right car seat. In B.C., children must be in a rear-facing car seat until they are one year old and at least 20 lbs (9kg). After their first birthday, toddlers weighing 20-40 lbs (9kg – 18kg) ride in a forward-facing car seat.
Booster seats are for children over 40 lbs (18kg) until they reach their ninth birthday or are 4’9″ (1.5m) in height.
