New Ontario government pauses changes to the Smoke Free Ontario Act including vaping laws


Armand Conant HeadshotProposed reforms to the Smoke Free Ontario Act have been put on pause by Premier Doug Ford. The proposed regulations which prohibited vaping in non-smoking areas as well as tighter restrictions to the retailing of vaping and ancillary products have been halted until the new government can further examine the health impact that surrounds the use of vaping. The Premier's spokesperson Simon Jefferies confirmed "“The current provisions in the Smoke Free Ontario Act and the Electronic Cigarettes Act remain in effect and will continue to be enforced”.
