The Helmet Law and Children
Ontario's bike helmet law requires all cyclists under 18 who are riding or operating a bicycle to be wearing an approved bike helmet. Parents are liable to be fined ($60 + $15 = $75) for not ensuring their children under 16 are wearing a helmet. 16 and 17 year olds can be fined directly.
Children on a bike seat or in a bike buggy need to wear an approved bike helmet.
