Environmental Scan of Workplace Tobacco Control Activities in Ontario Public Health Units




March 2017

Type of Report

Special Report


This report provides the results of an environmental scan conducted by the Provincial Young Adult Prevention Advisory Group to identify tobacco-focused workplace activities (beyond the Smoke-Free Ontario Act) undertaken within the past 5 years or planned to be undertaken in the future by Public Health Units (PHUs) and Tobacco Control Area Networks (TCANs). The scan also provides information on factors that hinder and support PHUs and TCANs in their workplace activities, and ideas for future knowledge exchange activities. The results provide valuable insights that can be used by Smoke-Free Ontario Act partners to inform recommendations and next steps for supporting current and future workplace cessation, protection and prevention activities.
