Key Tobacco Control Advocacy Campaigns
We have advocated for numerous tobacco control laws:
- August 31, 2016: Ottawa City Council prohibits waterpipe smoking inside and outside all public places and workplaces.
- June 2012: Ottawa banned water pipe smoking on outdoor municipal property, including parks, beaches and facilities. The Community and Protective Services Committee of Ottawa City Council recommended amending the Parks and Facilities By-law to include a ban on water pipe smoking on outdoor municipal property.
- February 2012: Ottawa adopted a smoke-free outdoor bylaw, making restaurant and bar patios, city parks, sports fields, beaches, the Byward and Parkdale Markets, and festivals and events on city property 100% smoke-free.
- 2009: Canada banned flavoured cigarettes and cigarillos, and tobacco advertising in all Canadian magazines and newspapers.
- 2009: Ontario banned smoking in cars with children.
- 2008: Ontario banned the display of tobacco products behind the counter in convenience and grocery stores (i.e. power walls).
- 2006: Ontario adopted the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, making all indoor public places and workplaces 100% smoke-free.
- 2001: Ottawa adopted the 100% Smoke-Free Bylaws for Indoor Public Places and Work Places.
