The Ottawa Police does not conduct child car seat inspections but we encourage you to register for an upcoming car seat inspection clinic by visiting S.E.A.T.S for Kids, Ottawa Safety Council's Best Fit Car Seat Program, or by calling Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744, ext. 28020. For more information on safety, visit the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
