Posted by The VapeMate Team on 12/3/2014 to Industry

The second reading of Ontario Bill 45 (Making Healthier Choices Act, 2014) began today and we are quite pleased that it did NOT fly through the reading as we actually had expected.

It appears that our efforts are making things happen but that doesn't mean we should stop doing what we are doing.

Call to ACTION for Ontario Vapers

ATTENTION VapeMate Customers - As you know, we do not send emails very often but when we do, it is usually of an urgent nature.

As many of you are probably already aware, Ontario Bill 45 (Making Healthier Choices Act, 2014) contains three schedules, one of which is the Electronic Cigarettes Act, 2014. This Act will effectively treat Electronic Cigarettes as a Tobacco product. Some examples of what will result from this Act, as it is currently written:

  • No Sales to Under 19 (one agreeable point)
  • No Displays of Electronic Cigarette hardware
  • No Displays of E-Liquid (with or without nicotine)
  • No Listing of flavours
  • No Showing consumers how to use or troubleshoot the devices
  • No Vaping in Vape Shops, thus no Vape Lounges
  • No Ontario Based Online Sales (Questionable but it is Display and Promotion)
  • No Indoor Vape Meets in Public Spaces (Even if private club, a paid venue or rented space)
  • No Vaping in vehicle with persons under 16 years old
  • Many other restrictions
