Forward Regulatory Plan 2021-2023: Regulations Amending the Vaping Products Promotion Regulations (Package and Design Features)
Title of Regulatory Initiative
Regulations Amending the Vaping Products Promotion Regulations (Package and Design Features)
Tobacco and Vaping Products Act
The purpose of the proposed restrictions on vaping products promotion (package and design features) would be to protect young persons and non-users of tobacco products from inducements to use vaping products.
The proposed regulations would place certain limits on what promotional elements can appear on vaping product packages. They would also impose restrictions on design features that are appealing to youth to prevent their use in the manufacture of vaping products.
Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international)
Potential impacts on Canadians, including businesses
The proposed regulations would impact vaping product manufacturers and importers. They would require that manufactures and importers comply with the requirements.
Health Canada published a consultation document on April 11, 2019, setting out potential regulatory measures to reduce youth access and appeal of vaping products. The consultation closed on May 25, 2019.
A summary of the consultation has been published in the What We Heard: Reducing Youth Access and Appeal of Vaping Products: Consultation Summary.
Canadians will have the opportunity to provide comments on the regulatory proposal during the Canada Gazette, Part I, public comment period, which is expected to take place in winter 2022 and last 75 days.
