New findings released by the New Brunswick Health Council show almost one-third of New Brunswick youth have tried vaping.

The number of students between grades 6-and-12 who say they’ve tried vaping is up across the board in New Brunswick. More than 29 per cent of youth surveyed say they’ve tried a vape product or an e-cigarette, compared to 22 per cent three years ago.

These preliminary numbers come from the 2018-2019 New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey (Grades 6-12). The full report has not officially been released yet.

A table comparing statistics in various regions of the province is shown in the following new article from Global News.
