Before attending a clinic, visit this website for great tips on installing your car seat.  It is our policy that you MUST ATTEMPT to install the car seat before attending a clinic.  Making an attempt at installation can teach you a lot, and makes it easier for our technicians to educate you further! 

This link from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation's website will help you choose an appropriate car seat for your child and may answer other questions too.
