Strategy

New Brunswick’s Tobacco-Free Living Strategy and Healthy Eating and Physical Activity

Strategy Promotion Webinar Series

In our ongoing series to promote New Brunswick’s Tobacco-Free Living Strategy, the NBATC has created a convenient infographic for our partners in the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPAC) sector with details on the connection between healthy eating and physical activity and tobacco use. The goal of this strategy promotion series is to help partners feel empowered to integrate this strategy into their individual work plans and to help achieve the Strategy’s vision of a tobacco and smoke-free province for all while generating discussions that promote a better understanding of the Strategy itself.
This new resource can be shared with a variety of groups demonstrating how a healthy lifestyle that includes smoke-free environments, healthy eating and regular physical activity, can positively affect tobacco use rates.

Other reports we have published over the years include the following.

Susceptibility to Smoking Amongst Youth in New Brunswick – New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition and New Brunswick Health Council – 2014

Susceptibility to smoking is defined as “the absence of a firm decision not to smoke.” This represents youth who have never tried smoking, but are at risk of smoking in the future. Susceptibility is therefore useful for predicting which youth may become smokers. This document presents statistics related to New Brunswick youth as well as some ideas on how parents and teachers can take action to reduce susceptibility to smoking among youth.
