Traveling with children in cars in BC

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.

If you are flying into Victoria, and need a car seat for your child, it may be possible to rent one.  Here’s a link to  possible sources:  Little Monkey Rentals, or Wee Travel.

I've lived in Victoria over 30 years. I've travelled the world but I still believe that no other city beats Victoria for it's sheer beauty and variety of activities available year round. I sincerely want to help others explore and enjoy this great city - and hopefully make you want to come back again and again!
