The Smoke-Free Ontario Act , which covers both smoking and vaping, is enforced by Tobacco Enforcement Officers at HPPH. The officers conduct inspections of public places and workplaces to ensure compliance with the law, respond to complaints about offences, and lay charges when necessary.

Second-hand smoking

Second-hand smoke is toxic. Reduce second-hand smoke and second-hand vapour in your home by making your home, car and living space a smoke-free and vape-free environment.
