The following is a copy of the letter sent out by the Government of Saskatchewan regarding their updates to regulations on vaping.
On November 6, 2019 Bill # 182 that amends The Tobacco Control Act to address vapour products was passed by the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly. Although passed, the amendments will not come into force until amendments to The Tobacco Control Regulations are approved.
Our intention is to have the amendments to the regulations completed so that the amended Act (with the exception of sections dealing with flavoured vapour products) and amended regulations can be brought into force together on February 1, 2020.
Prior to finalizing the amendments to The Tobacco Control Regulations, we are seeking input from stakeholders. Attached for your review and comments is a side-by-side document showing the existing sections of the regulations and proposed changes. A complete version of the existing regulations can be viewed at:
Please note that the proposed amendments do not include sections dealing with flavoured vapour products. At a future date, we will be consulting with several stakeholders on the best approach for addressing flavoured vapour products in Saskatchewan.
Please provide your comments by December 9, 2019 to:
Mr. Ullas Rameshappa Environmental Health Policy Officer Population Health Branch
Ministry of Health
3475 Albert Street
REGINA SK S4S 6X6
This correspondence has been distributed to stakeholders that are identified on the attached stakeholder distribution list.
