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.”
