Canada’s e-cig regulation is a three-tiered tangle



  • Executive summary
  • Introduction
  • Federal regulation of e-cigarettes
  • The role of Health Canada
  • Provincial regulation
  • Municipal regulation
  • Consumer safety and product standards
  • Appendix 1. New rules for Ontario
  • Appendix 2. ECTA warning requirements


In this report on the situation in Canada, we look at the confusion being caused by an unclear stance from the federal government. Provincial legislatures have issued their own rules, while Health Canada has issued an advisory despite having no authority to enforce it.
