Child Car Seats

By law, all children under 5 years of age and weighing less than 22 kg (50lbs) must travel in an approved child car seat at all times. As of August 8, 2013, a law came into force in Manitoba that makes it compulsory for older children travelling in motor vehicles to use booster seats. For your child's safety, provincial law requires children to be seated in booster seats until they are at least 145 cm (4'9") tall, 36 kg (80 lb.) OR 9 years old. Drivers are responsible for ensuring that child passengers are properly seated and restrained in child car seats, seat belts and booster seats.
