Consultation – Proposed Vaping Product Promotion Regulations
Current status: Closed
This consultation opened for comment on December 21, 2019 and closed to new input on January 20, 2020.
This consultation sought comments on the proposed Vaping Products Promotion Regulations.
A rapid increase in youth vaping has been observed in Canada. Health Canada is concerned that young persons are being exposed to vaping product-related harms, including those related to nicotine exposure which can result in an addiction to nicotine and long-term use of tobacco products. Health Canada has identified vaping product-related promotional activities as being one of the key factors that has contributed to the youth vaping problem.
We sought from:
- health partners
- the general public
- interested members of the industry
The purpose of this consultation was to get comments on the regulatory proposal that sets out measures that could decrease the impact of vaping product promotion on young persons and non-users of tobacco products and raise awareness about the harms of vaping products.
The proposed regulations would:
- prohibit the advertising that can be seen or heard by young persons;
- prohibit the display of vaping products that can be seen by youth at point of sale;
- require that all vaping product advertisements convey a health warning;
When and where
The consultation period closed on January 20, 2020.
