Consultation on the proposed Tobacco Products Regulations (Plain and Standardized Appearance)

Current status: Closed

This consultation ran from June 23, 2018 to September 6, 2018.

We were seeking comments on the proposed Tobacco Products Regulations (Plain and Standardized Appearance) and the Order to amend Schedule 1 to the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act which have been recently published in Canada Gazette, Part I.

The Tobacco and Vaping Products Act received Royal Assent on May 23, 2018. This Act enables the Government of Canada to apply plain and standardized appearance measures to all tobacco packages and certain tobacco products.

  • Protect youth and others from starting to use tobacco products and becoming dependent on them; and,
  • Prevent the public from being deceived or misled about the health hazards of using tobacco products.

We engaged with:

  • General public
  • Health professionals and associations
  • Provinces and territories
  • Industry
  • Academics and experts
  • Other interested parties

Goals of the consultation

  • The purpose of this consultation was to get feedback on the proposed measures to standardize the appearance of tobacco packages and certain tobacco products.
