I have been recently given an opportunity to attend ¬†the launch of¬†Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop Program at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto this past weekend. Organized as a fun event at the Auto Show,¬†¬†The workshop consisted of a kid-friendly brunch, followed by family-fun activities geared towards learning about car seat safety.
After the event, we were also given tickets to enjoy the Auto Show as well, where we walked around swooning over all sorts of cars- new cars, sports cars, prototype cars and some classics as well.
It was a day well spent in every way.
In the morning, along with a bunch of other families and caregivers, we learned from¬†a certified technician how to correctly install a car seat at the ¬†Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop Program .
And in the afternoon, we had a blast enjoying the Auto Show and the stories of which will find home in ¬†yet another post of mine ūüôā
Mean time, here are some details on the¬†Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat ¬†Installation Program that you would be interested to know about.
Chevrolet Canada is partnering with Parachute Canada to ensure the safety of our children while in a vehicle. The above said Car Seat Installation Workshop aimed at spreading the word about¬†offering families expert advice on installing car seats into any make or model of vehicle for free.
Families and caregivers can sign up for the free workshops at¬†www.safeandsure.ca.¬† Sessions will begin at Chevrolet dealerships in Vancouver and Toronto in April 2014. ¬†Dealerships in Montreal will begin offering the workshops in late spring 2014.¬† Regardless of the ¬†vehicle you drive, or the type of car seat you own, parents and caregivers can register online now for their free expert consultation.
These workshops were first initiated in Toronto back in 2012 and 2013. The response from parents, grandparents, expectant parents and caregivers¬†were so positively overwhelming that¬†Chevrolet is working with Parachute to now offer this program in three major cities.
