PHO Grand Rounds: Vaping Among Young People: Market Trends and Policy Implications

The vaping market in Canada is changing rapidly as a result of the implementation of more permissive policies in the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act in May 2018, which prompted the growth of e-cigarettes. This presentation will summarize recent evidence on vaping among young people, as well as market trends, including the shift towards high nicotine products. The implications for vaping and tobacco control policy in Canada will be discussed, as well as implications for cannabis control policies.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the prevalence and patterns of vaping among young people.
  • Describe the changing product market for e-cigarettes and vaping products in North America.
  • Identify existing vaping policies and proposed regulatory changes in Canada.
  • Recognize the broader public health implications of the changing nicotine market in terms of smoking cessation among adults and youth initiation.
