Current status: Open
This consultation will open for comment on February 5, 2019 Eastern Standard Time (EST) and will close to new input on March 22, 2019.
This consultation is seeking comments on proposed measures to limit the advertising of vaping products.
Health Canada is very concerned that youth are experimenting with and using vaping products in bigger numbers. We are proposing new measures by which advertising of vaping products can be limited to protect youth and non-users from the inducements to use vaping products.
We are seeking comments from:
- health partners
- the general public
- interested members of the industry
The purpose of this consultation is to get comments on the following proposals by which advertising of vaping products can be limited to protect youth and non-users from the effect of promotion:
- limit the places where advertisements can placed;
- limit the content in advertisements;
- inform the public through a warning on advertisements;
- limit the display of vaping products in certain retail locations.
