Ontario residents protected from exposure to second-hand smoke
On May 31 2006, the provincial government introduced a new law that prohibits smoking in all enclosed public places and workplaces including vehicles.
The Smoke-Free Ontario Act is a renewed tobacco strategy aimed at reducing the impact of the leading cause of premature death and disease in Ontario. This strategy and the Act also help keep cigarettes out of the hands of children and help Ontario residents quit smoking. For more information about smoking, visit Health Unit - Smoking / Tobacco.
