Parliament passes plain tobacco packaging law, regulates vaping’
The real reason that people start smoking is not because of the pack,’ Imperial Tobacco says
The bill doesn’t dictate exactly how plain packaging should be imposed, but a Health Canada backgrounder says the new Tobacco and Vaping Products Act will “provide … a range of options such as standardized colour, font and finish, and prohibitions on promotional information and brand elements, such as logos.”
A spokesperson for Health Canada did not say exactly when the new regulations would land, but added such regulations typically come into force 180 days after they are finalized by the department.
