Tyler Massey Memorial

Tyler Massey Law

Please share Tyler's story to help educate, influence and make an impact on people, parents and children about the dangers and risks that should not be taken with kids under 14 on ATV's. ATV manufacturers offer guidelines on engine size for young rider's and safe ATV use. Most ATVs are equipped with a label detailing the manufacturer's and CPSC's recommended age for that particular model.

Between 2001 and 2011, 33% of ATV-related emergency-room visits were in kids younger than 16.

Tyler Massey Memorial Fund

This is Tyler Massey's legacy - a place where we can all come together to remember and reflect on what a wonderful brother, son and friend he was to all of us.

Tyler was a 9 year old boy with a spirit larger than life. Tyler was kind, loving and curious. He loved animals and had a passion for riding dirt bikes. We would like to thank each and every one of you for your on going support. As the Tyler Massey Memorial Fund continues to grow, we will post our plans to build a playground in Tyler's honour at Goodwood Public School

Children under the age of 14 should never operate a full size ATV. Here In Ontario this is only a suggestion, Children under 14 lack the skill & strength to correct an unstable ATV with the weight ranging from 500lbs-1000lbs & hitting speeds up to 50mph.

Even children 14-16 should only ride an ATV with an engine size of 90cc's or less. Rollovers and collisions happen often.  According to Statistics Canada, there were 187 ATV-related deaths in 2007 (up from 142 in 2000). Among them were 18 children between the ages of 1 and 14.
Between 2001 and 2011, 33% of ATV-related emergency-room visits were in kids younger than 16.
