The Smoke Free Ontario Act (SFOA, 2017) prohibits the smoking and vaping of tobacco, cannabis and other substances to protect workers and the public from second-hand smoke and vapour. 


Under the Tobacco, Vapour and Smoke Protocol, 2018, the board of health shall publicly disclose a summary report of all retailer/owner convictions related to tobacco sales offences and vapour product sales offences. Enforcement activities are made available within two weeks of conviction and are posted for five years.
