Quebec Enacts Flavor Ban on E-cigarette Products
Quebec province in Canada will ban the sale of flavored e-cigarette products starting October 31st, according to official announcement.

According to an official announcement from the Canadian province of Quebec, the province will prohibit the sale of e-cigarette products with flavors other than tobacco or without flavoring. Additionally, the sale of bottled e-liquid with a capacity exceeding 30 milliliters and e-cigarette devices with a liquid capacity exceeding 2 milliliters will also be banned.


The policy will take effect 90 days after its announcement, starting from October 31st.


The flavor ban was announced in a draft released in April. According to the Quebec E-Cigarette Rights Alliance, over 30,000 Quebec residents have commented on the proposed ban, but reports suggest that the Ministry of Health has not made any changes to the regulations.


Quebec, with a population of 8.5 million residents, is the second most populous province in Canada and has become the largest province to implement a ban on flavors. The other four provinces and regions - Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and the Northwest Territories - have already implemented flavor bans, with Nunavut having passed the ban but not yet determined an implementation date. The remaining three provinces - British Columbia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan - restrict flavored products to be sold only in adult-only establishments such as e-cigarette shops.
