The prohibition of drop sides does NOT include crib designs with access sides, such as Foundations SafeReach® cribs.

Per the regulations published by Health Canada, all license child care centres in seven provinces and one territory (Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Yukon) must use cribs that meet these federal requirements. Provincial and territorial governments are responsible to dictate the enforcement plans of this new federal crib standard in licensed child care centres. Please consult with your local health ministry or provincial office to learn of enforcement proceedings.
