No Comments on Government of Canada Introduces New Tobacco and Vaping Products Legislation

Proposed legislation would create a new approach to regulating vaping products and lay the groundwork for future work on plain packaging

November 22, 2016 – Ottawa, ON – Health Canada

The Government of Canada is committed to protecting Canadians from nicotine addiction and tobacco use. Regulating vaping products to make them less accessible to youth will help achieve this goal.

As part of this commitment, the Government introduced today important new legislation — the proposed Tobacco and Vaping Products Act. The proposed Act amends the Tobacco Act to regulate vaping products as a separate class of products. As such, the Tobacco Act would be renamed the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act and would include provisions to protect youth from nicotine addiction and tobacco use; allow adults to access vaping products as likely less harmful alternatives to tobacco use; and protect the health and safety of Canadians through a variety of means.
