Child Car Seat Stages

There are four stages:

Stage 1: Rear-facing infant car seats

Stage 2: Forward-facing child car seats

Stage 3: Booster seats

Stage 4: Seatbelts

The following guidelines will help you use your child car seat properly. However, it’s still important to read and follow your child car seat and vehicle manufacturer’s instructions.

Always check Transport Canada's website for child restraint recalls and public notices.
