Find A Tech

If you would like to meet in person for a seat check, please directly contact a car seat technician via the list below (organized from north island to south) and make arrangements to do so. The tech’s certification/qualification and certifying body is listed with their name.  Some provide private checks free of charge but at a cost to themselves, others accept tips/donations, and other charge a fee on a sliding scale or for a set amount.

NOTE: Vancouver Island Car Seat Techs assumes no responsibility for interactions between individual technicians and parents/caregivers. Any and all arrangements are on an individual basis between parties; we simply list those who are willing to meet with parents. The rest is up to you!
