Canada is a world leader in tobacco control. Smoking is at an all-time low in Canada, with smoking rates dropping to a historic low of 17%. The number of Canadians who smoke on a daily basis is even lower, at 13%.

Our government is proud of the work we have done, and is now refocusing our anti-smoking grants and contributions program towards populations with higher smoking rates. In particular, aboriginal populations within Canada have rates as high as 50%.

We are committed to helping all Canadians in their fight against smoking. Our Government has introduced new warning labels on cigarette packages, which contain a n. tional quitline phone number for people who want help quitting. We have banned flavoured little cigars, which were clearly targeted towards youth.
