Lidz on Kidz
Every year too many children die or suffer serious head injuries that could have been prevented if they were wearing a properly fitted and the correct helmet for the sports or activities they play.
The mandate of the Lidz on Kidz program is to provide free educational sessions to generate awareness on the key messages on brain injury and the prevention to the general public.
Our speaking engagements cover the following topics:
Lidz on Kidz is also a community effort dedicated to providing bicycle helmets to children whose families cannot afford helmets. If your child needs a helmet to ensure that he/she is safe while enjoying the exercise that bicycling can provide please call the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington at 519-579-5300.
The Ontario Helmet Law came into effect on the 1st of October, 1995. Although originally intended to apply to all ages, it was amended by regulation before enactment to exempt adults 18 years of age and over. the penalty for failing to wear a helmet is $105 and the ticket(s) is given directly to 16/17 year old and to the parents of those under 16. However, set a good example and wear a bike helmet as an adult. Kids will follow your example and do the same. HELP PROTECT YOURSELVES AND THEM!
