Canada announces new federal excise duty and coordinated vaping tax regime

The Canadian government has announced a new federal excise duty on vaping products and is inviting provincial governments to participate in a new, coordinated, vaping taxation regime.

In its budget tabled in the House of Commons on 7th April, the government is proposing a federal excise duty rate of CAD1 ($0.79) per 2 ml, or fraction of 2 ml, for the first 10 ml of vaping substance, and CAD1 ($0.79) per 10 ml or fraction of that for volumes beyond that.
