Mar 3 / 2017 A Campaign to Reduce Teen Smoking

As the health risks associated with tobacco use have become increasingly evident, public health policies have responded appropriately with measures such as a ban on advertising tobacco.

These measures have been effective in reducing the prevalence of smoking down to 13%, but there are still 201,000 Canadian children between the ages of 19 and 25 who smoke.
