Notices

 

Quitting and Cessation

 

Smoke-Free Ontario and Other Legislations


Prevention and Youth Initiatives

Play, Live, Be Tobacco-Free means that everyone taking part in a sport or recreational activity does not use tobacco industry products. It means participants, parents, coaches, spectators and leaders do not smoke, snuff, dip, or chew tobacco while engaged in sport and recreation.


 

Smoke-Free Housing

Smoke-Free Housing Ontario is about helping to increase options for smoke-free living. Demand for smoke-free environments is on the rise. Ontarians are protected from second-hand smoke in virtually all enclosed workplaces and public places, yet many remain unwillingly exposed in their own homes as a result of smoke from neighbouring units.

Smoke-Free East.ca

Tobacco use is the biggest preventable cause of death and disease in Ontario. It kills 13,000 Ontarians each year. With the implementation of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, in 2006, the Ontario Government protects the health of all Ontarians by prohibiting smoking in enclosed workplaces and enclosed public places among other things. The Ministry of Health Promotion relies heavily on Local Public Health Units to inform, educate, provide appropriate resources and communicate with the public on all tobacco prevention, protection and cessation initiatives undertaken by various agencies. As a result the eastern region health units have created www.smokefreeeast.ca to uniformly serve the residents in Eastern Ontario.
