Manitoba

               

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.

Manitoba implemented The Non-Smokers Health Protection and Vapour Products Act in 2015. Under this law, the following are banned:

  • Vaping in indoor public places like schools, libraries, hospitals, malls, restaurants, indoor workplaces;
  • Vaping in cars where kids under 16 are present;
  • E-cigarette advertising and promotion (similar to bans on advertising on other tobacco products).

The law also provides exemptions for vaping in the following places:

  • Where e-cigarettes are predominately sold;
  • Designated smoking/vaping rooms in hotels and group living facilities.

Manitoba has an abundance of retail stores in Winnipeg, with only a few available throughout other parts of the state.
