On April 7, 2004, Canada became the first country in the world to ban the sale, advertising and import of baby walkers. It is also illegal in Canada to sell baby walkers at garage sales, flea markets or on street corners.
Falls down stairs in baby walkers were the greatest cause of serious head injuries for Canadian children under the age of two. Furthermore, babies in walkers can move quickly, run into hidden dangers, bump into furniture or pull on hanging appliance cords and tip over. For these reasons baby walkers have been prohibited.

Health Canada and Parents 2 Parents recommend that if you have a baby walker, you destroy it. Throw it away so it cannot be used again. It is illegal.
