As you plan your outdoor community event, there are many things to think about. This guide is designed to help you with your planning and to help make your outdoor community event smoke-free.
Outdoor events provide a wonderful opportunity for community activity and engagement. Most New Brunswickers don’t want to breathe in second-hand smoke. Creating a smoke-free outdoor event protects people, especially children, from exposure to dangerous second-hand smoke.
This guide was originally launched in January 2015. The legalization of cannabis in Canada in 2018 and the increasing popularity of vapour products over recent years pose new challenges regarding the promotion and respect of wellness supportive tobacco and smoke-free environments. The guide has been revised and relaunched in April 2019 to reflect these new challenges.
