In Canada, tobacco control practices, programs and policies occur at the national, provincial and local levels. While federal, provincial and territorial governments play an important role through the provision of strategic direction and funding and the development of programs and legislation, important tobacco control efforts also occur at the local/regional level within the public health community. This report provides a review of the literature and best/better initiatives regarding the effectiveness of protection, prevention and cessation activities that are potentially relevant to the public health community. This literature review was prepared by the Ontario Tobacco Research Unit for the Canadian Public Health Association project The Next Stage: Delivering Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Knowledge through Public Health Networks.
