Taxation of Vaping Products
Current Status: Open until June 30, 2021
Vaping poses risks, especially to young people. In addition to raising revenues, vaping taxation could become an effective means to help curtail harmful consumption of these products. Budget 2021 announces the Government of Canada’s intention to introduce a new taxation framework for the imposition of excise duties on vaping products in 2022. This consultation seeks views and feedback on this proposed measure, which is described in detail in the Budget 2021 Annex entitled Tax Measures: Supplementary Information.
We also welcome any additional comments or feedback relevant to the scope of this consultation.
