The Canadian experience: Considerations for regulating e-cigarettes

10:00 - 10:15

Canada’s new regulatory regime for e-cigarettes and other vaping products was established with the creation of the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act in May of 2018.  The Act balances objectives of protecting young persons from nicotine addiction and tobacco use while allowing adult smokers access to vaping products as a less harmful alternative to smoking.  Mr. Van Loon will provide an overview of the Canadian approach and look ahead to key issues and challenges.
