Hello Ontario mamas and papas!
You are eligible for a free Baby Box if you are an Ontario resident who is currently expecting or has a baby younger than 3 months of age.
We distribute free Baby Boxes via a simple 3-step program.
STEP ONE: REGISTER ON BABY BOX UNIVERSITY
The first step is to register on Baby Box University at www.babyboxuniversity.com as an Ontario resident. Please note that we are not affiliated with Baby Box Canada and do not ship samples directly to your home. We provide safe-sleep Baby Boxes that comply with Health Canada's bassinet standard. Our Baby Boxes do come with free products for baby care and development, but the primary purpose of our program is to provide a safe sleep space for all infants regardless of socioeconomic status and to engage as many parents as possible in our supportive community.
Babies typically outgrow the Baby Box at around 6 months of age.
STEP TWO: GET YOUR COMPLETION CERTIFICATE
Your local health experts have been working hard to put together the information and activities they feel will best support Ontario parents. Once you register on www.babyboxuniversity.com with an Ontario postal code, please click on "Select Your Course", locate the "Ontario Canada" Course, once you see "Ontario Course -- the Intro to Parenthood 101" click the orange button below that says "Begin Course"
CLICK “SIGN UP” IF YOU ARE A FIRST TIME USER OR “LOG IN” IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED.
THE ONTARIO COURSE WILL LOAD WHEN YOU CLICK THE “LEARN MORE" BUTTON. FOLLOW THE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS AND COMPLETE THE COURSE.
The Ontario course will take approximately 10 minutes to complete online and, once finished, snap a screen shot of your completion certificate or print it out, either will be accepted by the distribution centre. To find the distribution centre closest to you, please go to www.babyboxuniversity.com, click through your Course, and See Quiz Results.
STEP THREE: COLLECT YOUR BABY BOX
Baby Boxes are now available for pick up in your Province! This means that you should contact the distribution centre closest to you and make arrangements to take your completion certificate in to claim your free Baby Box.
Join our international community of Baby Box Co. parents!
If you work with a non-profit, hospital, or other healthcare, education, or community agency in Ontario and would like to register as an active Baby Box distribution site, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime to get signed up!
It takes a village.
