Ontario Annual Seatbelt Campaign Reminds Drivers, Passengers to Buckle Up

Ontario is launching its annual seatbelt campaign to remind drivers and passengers to buckle up and make sure children are properly secured in the right child car seat or booster seat.

Police, fire and emergency services workers, health care professionals and road safety groups across the province are participating in the campaign, which runs until Oct. 10. It includes educational demonstrations, seatbelt enforcement by police and a series of child car seat inspection clinics.

Wearing a seatbelt and using the right child car seat or booster seat is the most effective way to reduce the risk of injury or death in a collision.

Ontario's One Person, One Seatbelt law requires every occupant in a motor vehicle to buckle up properly. Drivers must also make sure all passengers under the age of 16 are properly secured with the appropriate child car seat, booster seat or seatbelt.

Excerpt from Halton District School's website: "We know a student’s mental health impacts their school performance, attendance and achievement. We also know that positive mental health is a learning enabler yet up to 20 per cent or more of children and youth experience mental health problems at any given time.

We have a collective and shared responsibility, not only to respond to a student’s mental health need, but to include the promotion of positive mental health and the prevention of illness in our day-to-day interactions in our school communities. Education, awareness and the de-stigmatizing of mental health are all crucial pieces of the puzzle." The Board has produced a video as a resource for parents. Click here to view the video.
