Smoke-Free Ontario Act

The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017, which was scheduled to come into effect on July 1, 2018, is currently paused as the provincial government reviews previously planned changes. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2006 and the Electronic Cigarettes Act, 2015 remain in effect for rules on the sale, supply, use, display and promotion of tobacco products and e-cigarettes.

The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, which took effect May 31, 2006, combines legislation from both the Tobacco Control Act and the Smoking in the Workplace Act and is aimed at banning smoking in all enclosed public places and workplaces as well as making it easier to prosecute tobacco retailers for selling tobacco to those under 19.
