Enhancing your health in so many ways.

De nombreuses façons d'améliorer votre santé.


Tobacco

Living tobacco-free is one of the best things you can do for your health.

We provide support and services for quitting, information for youth and young adults, tobacco inspections and enforcement and assistance with developing smoke-free policies.

Quitting smoking

You can quit smoking. We can help.

Youth and young adults

Did you know one person dies every six seconds due to tobacco use, according to the World Health Organization? Did you know that tobacco companies target youth just like you? They do this by making tobacco look cool. Even smoking in movies is done on purpose to target you.

Did you know that you can fight back? Don’t be fooled. You can resist and stay smoke-free.
