Current Status of Vaping Regulations in Canada

 In Consumer Products, Product Safety

In light of the US Food and Drug Administration and Centre for Disease Control investigating the outbreak of vaping-related lung disease, Canadian public health officials are putting pressure on the government to address these concerns. Bill S-5, which enacted the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA), successfully passed through Parliament in May 2018. However, proposed regulations associated with vaping have yet to be officially set in stone. Such regulations include standardized labeling, child-resistant container requirements, and advertising.

As cases of vaping-related illnesses appear in Canada, provincial governments may look to review their own vaping regulations. Alberta, currently the only province without provincial legislation, has announced they will review the issue in November while taking into account the recent cases of respiratory illness.

Health Canada published a consultation summary document in July 2019  on potential regulatory measures to reduce youth access to vaping products, which can be read here.
