SMOKING IN CANADA

SMOKING IN CANADA

Laws and regulations about smoking in Canada will vary from province to province and municipality to municipality.

The federal government sets the legal age to buy tobacco at 18 years nation-wide. Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Ontario, and British Columbia all require that an individual be 19 to purchase tobacco.

Most major cities in the provinces have enacted further restrictions on where and when people may smoke in public. Students who smoke should check the local laws and bylaws for the city and province they wish to study in.
