Vapour products with and without nicotine are not regulated under any product-specific laws. Nicotine is a scheduled drug under the Medicines and Related Substances Act and as such can only be sold by pharmacists and purchased with a doctor’s prescription.
The Tobacco Products and Electronic Delivery Systems Control Bill was introduced in Parliament in December 2022. If adopted, it would regulate both nicotine-free and nicotine-containing e-cigarettes, and their components (such as cartridge, mouthpiece, etc). The bill is currently being publicly discussed in different provinces around the country. The public hearings are expected to continue in 2024.
