Some Canada’s data insights

In May 2018, the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act became law, bringing nationwide regulation of e-cigarettes to Canada. The Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA) sets the general rules governing vapour products, both with and without nicotine.

The most recent Proposal on Vaping Products Labelling and Packaging Regulations was submitted in June 2019, which aims to strengthen product requirements, especially regarding nicotine products.

In February 2019, the government served notice of plans to tighten restrictions on advertising and published the Notice of Intent – Potential Measures to Reduce the Impact of Vaping Products Advertising on Youth and Non-users of Tobacco Products. Although the period for public comments ended in March, the government still has not decided on the next steps.

Canada is a fast-growing market; however, the growth rate is currently negatively affected by the recent vaping scandal in the US. Vape stores are registering a significant decrease in sales.
