Tobacco Act Review to Address Vaping
The province will be leading a review of tobacco and smoking legislation with a focus on regulating vaping. Alberta’s current smoking and tobacco legislation doesn’t specifically address vaping or the use of tobacco-like products such as hookah and water pipe in public and work places. In the coming weeks, Albertans will be informed as to how they can submit their input. The review will begin by Nov. 1, as required, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Amendments to the act will be introduced in the spring 2020 session of the legislature.
