McMaster Children's Hospital has teamed up with Hamilton Police Services and Hamilton Public Health to launch a community safety campaign promoting the correct use of booster seats for young children. This campaign will position Hamilton as a leader in the promotion of booster seat safety, and will support Hamilton's initiative as the best place to raise a child.
Booster seats are required for all Ontario children until 8 years of age OR who weigh 40-80 lbs, OR stand less than 4'9" tall.
THE LAW IS THE MINIMUM
