All about Tobacco Use and Control in Canada

The Canadian government perceives the continuous decrease in the rate of tobacco users as a sign that tobacco control is effective in all levels of the country. However, a lot of people still continue smoking despite the pre-existing dangers. Most of these individuals are aborigines, people with mental health and addiction disorders, blue collar workers and population with low income and low educational attainment. These people still pose the urge for the government to pursue smoking interventions.

In Canada, tobacco control focuses more on discouraging the youth from smoking rather than punishing them. Its strategy mainly focuses on three major goals: prevention, protection, and cessation. Prevention is basically done through policies, school-based programs, and advertising restriction through the involvement of media. Protection is for non-smokers who are exposed through secondary and environmental smoke. It is done through monitoring and pursuing enforcement activities. Finally, government pursues smoking cessation among youth and young adults through funding and supporting programs that provide modalities and settings for those who have already stopped smoking.

The multi-federal strategies of controlling tobacco use in Canada began in 1986. Some of the significant programs that have contributed to the reduction of tobacco smokers include the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy and the National Tobacco Control Strategy. The Comprehensive Tobacco Control (CTC) is also one of the effective strategies in controlling and protecting youth and young adults from using tobacco. According to some studies, tobacco control advocates and health professionals have also contributed to the success of tobacco control and cessation among youth and young adults including a few of the native aborigines in Canada.
