How is the increase in youth vaping impacting the Canadian approach to regulating e-cigarettes?
09:30 - 09:45
Canada’s new regulatory regime for e-cigarettes and other vaping products was established with the passage of the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act in May 2018. The Act balances the opportunities and risks associated with the use of these products to help Canadians quit smoking and prevent youth and non-smokers from developing a dependence on nicotine. Almost a year later and with emerging evidence of an increase in youth use in Canada, there is a need to re-examine the regulatory balance. Mr. Van Loon will outline the comprehensive activities that the Government of Canada is taking to address recent increases in youth vaping and look ahead to key issues and challenges.
