Tobacco Control

 

There is strong medical evidence that smoking tobacco is related to more than two dozen diseases and conditions. It has negative effects on nearly every organ of the body and reduces overall health.

Tobacco Control Laws in the NWT

The Tobacco Control Act and Tobacco Control Regulations outline the rules associated with the use and sale of tobacco products in the NWT. Environmental Health Officers are responsible for conducting inspections of tobacco retailers to ensure that these businesses are in compliance with the legislation.
