Tobacco, Youth and Young Adults


Interested in volunteering?

If you are a high school student interested in helping to prevent smoking and tobacco use in your community, check out our youth volunteer page or contact the Health Unit to learn more. 

Leave the Pack Behind

Leave the Pack Behind is a tobacco control program that offers young adults smoking and quitting information, personalized support, and quitting resources – all for free.

E-Cigarettes and vaping

There are a lot of questions around the safety of e-cigarettes and vaping. Check out the page for more information.

Smoke-free movies

It’s a fact – the more youth see smoking in movies, the more likely they are to start smoking. Learn how you can join the campaign to keep smoking out of youth-rated movies.

Chew, spit, snuff and dip

Smokeless tobacco products come with their own set of health risks. Similar to cigarettes, it is illegal to sell or supply these products to people under 19. Learn more about the risks of smokeless tobacco.

Traditional tobacco

The traditional tobacco used by many Indigenous communities is different from commercial tobacco products like cigarettes and chew. Learn more about the sacred uses of tobacco.
