According to a recent report from the public health department of Canada, there will be a ban on these products for young people.
Earlier this year, Canada's health minister, Patty Hajdu, announced that advertisements for e-cigarettes would be banned in places where minors could see them, such as billboards and convenience stores. "The latest statistics show that the number of smokers in high school has doubled, which is alarming," the health minister said at the time. The new measures announced today will help, but more needs to be done. "
Subsequently, Health Canada announced in a briefing last week that it would ban the display of such products in outlets accessible to young people and on any public places or platforms that could be seen or heard by people of this age group. In addition, health warnings of health risks associated with the product must be communicated in any permitted advertising.
The ban only applies to provinces / territories that have not yet implemented such restrictions. Health Canada said it was also considering more regulatory measures to further limit the content and taste of nicotine in e-cigarettes.
