Child car seat in an RV in Canada
In Canada, each province has its own laws regarding child car seats.
Here are the laws for some of the larger provinces:
In Alberta, all children 5 years and under are required by law to be in a car seat, regardless of their weight.
British Columbia also requires car seats but for all children 6 and under. The weight of the child is not taken into account.
Ontario is the province with the strictest car seat laws. Car seats are required up until the age of 8 (inclusively). In addition, a child must weigh a minimum of 80 pounds to be exempt from using a car seat, at any age.
Car seats are required until the age of 5 in Quebec. In addition, a child must weigh at least 40 pounds to no longer require a car seat, regardless of age.
