Smoking and Vaping: New Rules

In the News

New changes in the law seek to prevent youth and non-smokers from becoming addicted to nicotine through vaping products.

Protecting youth and non-smokers

Since 2015 in Quebec, most of the rules on smoking also apply to vaping, including a ban on selling vaping products to people under 18. Now on-line sales of vaping products to people under 18 are also illegal. Delivery personnel have a duty to check that the buyer is 18 or older.

Also banned are vaping products with flavours of candy, dessert, pot, soft drinks and energy drinks.

These changes are added to existing restrictions, such as where you can’t smoke, either tobacco or electronic cigarettes.
