Government and industry strive to ensure that children's products are safe, however injuries may still occur.
How does Health Canada help keep children safe?
We work with industry and the public to help prevent product-related injuries and to promote safety and the safe use of children's products. We also encourage the design of safer products for the Canadian market by providing importers and manufacturers with hazard and product technical information.
The Department takes action on several fronts. Health Canada:
- Conducts research on potential hazards associated with consumer products,
- Raises awareness of potential risks of injury through our product safety advisories, warnings and recalls,
- Develops and enforces product safety regulations and standards, and
- Provides channels for reporting a product-related injury or death, or a safety-related issue with a consumer product.
