Injuries from the use of consumer products are common, often serious and sometimes fatal.
Survey results have shown that most Canadians believe that if a product is available for sale, it is safe or has been tested for safety. But this is not always the case in Canada, particularly for children’s products. In fact, many consumer products, including many children’s products, do not have to meet any standards or regulations. The result is an increasing risk of product-related injuries to children and youth due to their age, cognitive abilities and developmental stage.
