0-5 Years Old - Safety and Nutrition

Safety

Providing a safe environment for your child is your responsibility. 

We’d like to encourage you to explore the following sites to ensure that you are providing your child with the best possible start in life and the safest way to grow up.  Information on toy recalls, car seat regulation and what to look for when you have a baby can be found at Parachute. Safe Kids Canada has joined with Safe Communities Canada, SMARTRISK, and ThinkFirst Canada to create Parachute, a national, charitable organization dedicated to preventing injury and saving lives.
