Prince Edward Island

               

Brief Overview

Health Canada classifies nicotine-containing e-cigarettes as new drugs under the Food and Drug Regulations. As such, there are restrictions on their sale, advertisement, promotion, sponsorship, importation and manufacturing. Products without nicotine are not regulated.

Prince Edward Island implemented the Tobacco and Electronic Smoking Device Sales and Access Act and Amendments to the Smoke Free Places Act in 2015. Under these laws, the following are banned:

  • Sale and supply to minors and purchase by minors;
  • Sale where tobacco sale is banned;
  • Vaping in indoor public spaces and workplaces;
  • Vaping in cars with kids under 19, on restaurant/bar patios except between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m., within 4.5 metres of doors and air intakes;
  • Vaping on construction sites;
  • Point of sale promotion and promotion visible from outside retail premises;
  • Outdoor signage;
  • Any advertising that is misleading regarding the characteristics, health effects and health hazards of these devices.

Prince Edward Island has a small vaping scene and only a few retail stores can be found here.
