Special Report


This Special Report presents the results from an evaluation study that assessed the extent to which Ontario’s smoking cessation system meets the needs of young male smokers who are 19-29 years old. In 2008, young males had the highest prevalence of current smoking in Ontario; cessation was identified as an evaluation priority for this sub-population. Using a mixed method approach, this evaluation aims to identify potential gaps in Ontario’s smoking cessation system and to highlight possible future directions.
