There are a number of different vehicle emergency kits available to drivers, some better suited for the Canadian climate than others. When choosing your emergency kit, make sure you have the basics including a first aid kit, extra clothing and non-perishable food items. Other items recommended for your kit include a tow rope, fire extinguisher and flash light. See the Government of Canada's official recommendation for everything you should have in your car emergency kit.
