As reavealed in their Meeting Minutes at approximately 12:33 p.m, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA) agreed to begin a "study" spanning no fewer than five (5) meetings beginning on October 21st, 2014.  The study focus on the following areas:

  1. the potential risk, benefits and challenges associated with these products domestically, including the renormalization of smoking, and use as smoking cessation aids,
  2. the pros and cons of ways in which different jurisdictions both domestically and internationally have chosen to regulate these products, and
  3. options for realizing any benefits and addressing any significant health and safety risks

The Committee will hear witnesses from the Department of Health concerning e-cigarettes during the first hour, and then begin with other witnesses during the second hour.

Anyone can appear as witness for the committee and/or submit a Brief for the committee to review.  We encourage any and all persons to exercise this opportunity to have your voices heard.
