Coming Into Force Date of New Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 Postponed
Date: July 3, 2018
As we previously reported, the new Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA) was to come into force on July 1, 2018.
That coming into force date has been postponed indefinitely to give the new government an opportunity to review the new regulations related to vaping.
Until the SFOA is proclaimed into force, the existing Smoke-Free Ontario Act and Electronic Cigarettes Act, 2015 remain in force.
Note that this legislation applies to provincially regulated workplaces. Federally regulated workplaces are subject to the federal Non-smokers’ Health Act.
