Oceanside Community Safety currently has Child Car Seat Technicians trained by the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada.
A child car seat or booster is the only legally required piece of baby gear. As safety equipment, it's important to use it properly every time. A Technician can meet with you to teach you how to use and install your car seat and ensure it is the right seat for the child and the vehicle. It could save your child's life in a crash.
You might wish to consider seeing us for help with choosing, installing and using your child restraint before your first child is born.
For more information, contact CPST@oceansidecsv.org.
To book a private check, subject to staff availability, you can also call:

We also host a number of public clinics throughout the year.

All clinics take place from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on Wednesdays on a drop in basis:
OCSV child seat technicians participate in Island Public Health's Kindergarten Clinics held once a month in the same location as our regular child seat clinics. While the primary focus of these clinics are immunization, you are welcome to drop in between the times shown for each date and have all your child seat questions answered.
