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

Thank you to everyone who participated in Our survey. The results of the engagement and the report to council are available on our website.
