The Province implemented new legislation today around the selling, advertising, and use of e-cigarettes.
The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act was first introduced as an amendment in spring 2015 to help stop the popularity of “vaping.”
From now on, using e-cigarettes will be treated like any other tobacco product. It will now only be sold to adults 19 and older, and ads, displays, and products must be hidden.
The Province states that the prevalence of e-cigarette use is highest among youth, noting one in five young Canadians has tried an e-cigarette.
You won’t be able to smoke e-cigarettes in public and private school grounds, workplaces, or in vehicles with kids under 16.
