Striking the Right Balance: Vaping and E-Cigarette Regulation in Canada  

  • Experts in both the public and private sectors met at a C.D. Howe Institute conference in Ottawa to discuss the recent outbreak of vaping-related illnesses and approaches to the regulation of e-cigarette and vaping products in Canada.

  • Presenters and participants explored how to balance the possible health risks posed by vaping and e-cigarette products and the benefits of smoking cessation through practical approaches to regulation.

  • Regulations and possible taxation of vaping products should be designed to balance the objectives of encouraging adult smokers to switch to vaping products as a healthier form of nicotine delivery, and making vaping products inaccessible and unattractive to young people.
