Event Details

Freeze the Industry is a provincial youth-led coalition, supported by adult allies. The coalition is part of the Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy that was developed by Ottawa Public Health over 10 years ago to ban flavours in tobacco, something that has been achieved in Ontario. Currently, young adults (20-24 years old) have the highest smoking prevalence rates of any age group in Canada (20%, CCHS, 2014). In Canada, the packaging of tobacco products is considered to be one of the last remaining avenues for tobacco companies to promote the use of their products.Packaging is a form of advertising/promotion and plan and standard packaging will limit the tobacco industry’s ability to design packaging to target groups like youth, men, and women.The health warnings will remain on the packages. The Canadian Government made a commitment in November 2015 to introduce plan and standard packaging requirements for tobacco products, as a key element of the government’s overall tobacco control strategy. FTI is supporting the federal government to pass legislation, Bill S-5 for PSP for all tobacco products in Canada. Join us at the rally to show your support!
