On May 5, 2020, Nova Scotia became the first province in Canada to adopt a maximum nicotine level of 20 mg/ml for e-cigarettes and e-liquids. The Nova Scotia regulation comes into force Sept. 1, 2020.
The maximum nicotine level of 20 mg/ml is the same standard that has been in place in the 28-country European Union (EU) for a number of years.
Some tobacco companies are selling in Canada e-cigarette brands with nicotine levels almost triple this maximum level.
