For a fourth straight year, Ottawa Public Health has partnered with sports retailers across Ottawa to bring Ottawa residents a discount on helmets. Helmets prevent serious brain and head injuries by absorbing the force from a fall or hit to the head. Helmets are recommended for activities like skateboarding, rollerblading, biking, sledding, skating skiing and snowboarding.
In Ontario, it is mandatory for anyone under the age of 18 to wear a certified helmet while riding a bicycle (Highway Traffic Act).
