Helmet law in Ontario
In Ontario, all riders under 18 years of age are required by law to wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet. For adults over 18, a helmet is not required by law but is strongly recommended, as wearing a helmet can greatly reduce the risk of serious injury in the case of a fall or accident.

How to wear your helmet correctly
To provide the most protection, a helmet should fit level and snugly on a rider’s head, and should not slip when you move your head. There are also some other guidelines to ensure your helmet is on properly:
- There should be two fingers of width between your eyebrows and the helmet.
- The straps should lay flat against the face.
- The side straps should meet just below the ear, and make a ‘V’ that meets just below your earlobe.
- The chin strap should be fastened snugly so that there is room to fit one or two fingers between the strap and your chin.
- The helmet should be sized correctly and tightened down with the dial at the back so that it is snug, but not pinching anywhere.
