Proper placement and installation are important
Unfortunately, approximately half of child car seats and almost half of all booster seats are used incorrectly.* That's why Manitoba Public Insurance has introduced the Manitoba Child Car Seat Program, which offers free child car seat inspections throughout the province by technicians who are nationally certified through St. John Ambulance.
Manitoba Public Insurance provides no-cost training, support and information to technicians and instructors. Technicians range from emergency services personnel to community members. Look for an upcoming car seat inspection near you.
