Why are no life jackets available/approved for infants in Canada, but there are in the US?

The US and Canada have different standards for infant lifejackets. For more information on US Infant lifejacket standards, visit www.uscgboating.org. There are no PFDs for children under 20 lbs in Canada. Canadian Coast Guard has a web page that outlines the fitting of life jackets for children and infants. The web address is www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca. The Office of Boating Safety Info line is 1-800-267-6687, email: obs-bsn@dfo-mpo.gc.ca
