Live Tobacco-Free

Smoking is the number one cause of
preventable death and disease in Ontario

Tobacco kills half of all its long-term users. That equates to 36 Ontarians a day or 13,000 Ontarians per year. We want to help the public to live tobacco-free by providing information on:

2017 World No Tobacco Day (WNTD)

Every year on May 31st, the World Health Organization and partners mark WNTD to highlight the health and additional risks associated with tobacco use, and advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. The theme for this year is Tobacco – a threat to development.

At Toronto Public Health, we are promoting the day and encouraging quit attempts by running two cessation workshops. Workshop dates and details.
