Quit Smoking & Vaping

Smoking and use of tobacco products, including e-cigarettes (vaporizers), cigars and smokeless tobacco, cause or worsen numerous diseases and conditions. 

Every year, an estimated 48,000 Canadians die from tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke, making it the leading cause of preventable death in this country. Tragically, each day thousands of kids still pick up a vaping (e-cigarette) or tobacco product for the first time.
