E-Cigarettes, Vaping Products and Flavoured Tobacco
Since January 1st, 2016, New Brunswick's Tobacco and Electronic Cigarette Sales Act prohibits the sale of all flavoured tobacco products, including menthol, in the province. The sale of e-cigarette and e-juices to persons under 19 years of age is also prohibited.
Canada's Bill S-5 (An Act to amend the Tobacco Act and the Non-smokers’ Health Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts) will also now formally legalize (and heavily regulate) vaping and give Health Canada the powers it needs to mandate plain and standard packaging for cigarettes.
Bill S-5:
  • Gives Health Canada the power to implement plain and standardized tobacco packaging.
  • Applies many of the existing tobacco regulations to vaping products.
  • Prohibits the sale of vaping products to minors.
  • Restricts "lifestyle" advertising for vaping products, the use of testimonials, or any reference to e-cigarettes as healthier than standard tobacco products.
  • Bans certain flavours — like "confectionery" and cannabis — for vaping products.
