Date: Tuesday, September 19, 2017 | 1:30pm – 3:00pm (EST)
Language: English | Format: 90-minutes (online)
In the past two years, Ontario, along with other provinces, has been implementing world-leading regulations on restricting flavours in tobacco products including menthol, but how well have these policies been working and have there been any unintended consequences?
This webinar will present the results of evaluations of these regulations using wholesale sales data reported to Health Canada, a cohort of menthol smokers assessed before and after the ban, and a menthol pack purchase study.
This presentation will also highlight the latest results from an ongoing evaluation of the outdoor smoking regulations, restrictions on flavours, and e-cigarette sales restrictions.
