Ontario Tobacco Research Unit
The e-cigarette policy environment in Canada is developing rapidly. With support from Health Canada, and in partnership with Physicians for Smoke Free Canada’s project “Addressing Knowledge Gaps Important to Tobacco Control”, the Ontario Tobacco Research Unit (OTRU) has completed three reports to address policy options to regulate vaping in Canada.
This webinar series will explore theory, evidence, and explore options for regulatory policies that may be important considerations in Canada. The goal is to provide an overview of the vaping context in Canada, assess the evidence for a range of policy options, and discuss the feasibility of implementation in jurisdictions across Canada. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and provide comments.
OTRU will award a certificate in “E-Cigarette Policy” to participants who complete all three sessions.
Please RSVP using the following links. You must sign up for all three webinars to obtain the certificate.
