New Tobacco and Vaping Products Control and Regulation Act in force

The Tobacco and Vaping Products Control and Regulation Act has been proclaimed by the Government of Yukon and is now in force. This new Act replaces the Smoke-Free Places Act and regulates the use, sale, display and promotion of tobacco and vaping products in Yukon.

A number of changes will immediately take effect, including the following:

  • an individual must be 19 years old to sell or to use tobacco and vaping products in Yukon;
  • different restrictions will apply regarding the use and promotion of vaping products, similar to the current restrictions regarding tobacco products; and
  • signage must include “no vaping” in addition to “no smoking.”
