In 2018, Council gave staff direction to engage on smoking restrictions that go beyond what’s in our current Smoking Bylaw, which mirrors the Smoke Free Ontario Act. Alongside our working group, we’d like to hear from the community on how they feel about the following proposed restrictions:

  • three metres of any entrance or exit of a public building
  • City parks, trails and leash free areas
  • three metres of transit stops
  • the grounds of all municipal properties, including City Hall
  • outdoor festivals, special events or parades

Please take the survey below. Your feedback will be used to make recommendations to Council in early 2020.
