Crib Safety

Drop-side cribs are prohibited in Canada.

Please verify that your crib is safe before purchasing in new and second-hand stores, and garage sales.

Health Canada says it knows of one death, one concussion and eight reports of bumps, scrapes and bruises involving drop-side cribs between January 2000 and May 2016.

Health Canada says that the ban does not prohibit parents from using older equipment, but they are encouraged to ensure that these devices meet current Canadian safety standards.
