Second-hand smoke, smoke-free spaces and the law

Last revised: March 27, 2024

The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA, 2017) regulates the sale, supply, display and promotion of tobacco, as well as workplaces and public places to protect workers and the public from second-hand smoke and vapour.

Smoking refers to the smoking or holding of lit tobacco or cannabis. Vaping refers to inhaling or exhaling vapour from an electronic cigarette or holding an activated electronic cigarette, whether or not the vapour contains nicotine.

To help reduce youth access to tobacco and vapour products, and ensure specified public places and workplaces are smoke and vapour-free, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care directs all Public Health Units to enforce the SFOA, 2017. Within the city of Ottawa, this is done through inspections and enforcement activities by the Tobacco Enforcement Officers (TEOs) from By-law and Regulatory Services. The TEOs also respond to complaints and under the SFOA 2017, the TEOs have the authority to lay charges when necessary.

For more information on the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, please visit the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s website at ontario.ca/smokefree. For help to reduce or quit smoking, call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 or visit their website for more services.

Second-hand smoke facts

There is no safe level of second-hand smoke.

Second-hand smoke affects the health of everyone, especially children and the elderly. Second-hand smoke can worsen the health of those with asthma, allergies and other respiratory conditions and is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Second-Hand Smoke Facts

Second-hand smoke (SHS) is the smoke exhaled by a smoker as well as the smoke from the burning tobacco. It contains more than 4,000 dangerous chemicals, 70 of which cause cancer.

There is no safe level of exposure, even outdoors. Exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS) can be as dangerous on restaurant patios, the beach or park as it is indoors. Cigarette butts can also contaminate sandboxes and beaches.

Studies show that smoke-free spaces can dramatically reduce heart attack rates and respiratory illnesses. Smoke-free spaces can:

  • protect non-smokers from the harmful effects of SHS
  • help smokers to quit
  • encourage former smokers to remain smoke-free
  • protect children from starting to smoke by providing good role models
  • reduce litter
Are you exposed to your neighbour's second-hand smoke?

The Smoke-Free Ontario Act prohibits smoking tobacco and cannabis (medicinal and recreation) in common areas of condominiums, apartment buildings and college and university residences. Examples of common areas include elevators, stairwells, hallways, parking garages, laundry facilities, lobbies, exercise areas and party or entertainment rooms.

Second-hand smoke can easily transfer between units and can expose you to harmful second-hand smoke in your home. To learn how you can protect yourself from second-hand smoke, visit Smoke Free Housing Ontario

Schools and the Smoke-Free Ontario Act (SFOA), 2017 - Frequently asked questions

Many school administrators have asked for clarifications on the Smoke-Free Ontario Act (SFOA), 2017 as it pertains to schools and school properties. As a result, the following section has been developed to provide information and to help support the school administrators.

General provisions of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017

What is the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA)?

The SFOA, 2017 is a provincial law that regulates where smoking and vaping can take place (including cannabis), regulates the sale of tobacco and vaping products, and addresses the use of tobacco and vaping products in Ontario.

What does the SFOA say about the use of tobacco and vaping products on school property?
  • The SFOA prohibits smoking and vaping in any public and private school, including all indoor space, outdoor grounds and public areas within 20 metres of the school’s grounds.
  • The SFOA applies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
What specifically is prohibited?
  • The SFOA prohibits anyone from smoking (or holding any lighted tobacco product) and vaping (or holding an activated e-cigarette) on school property. Tobacco products include cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, blunt wraps, pipes and roll your own cigarettes made of loose cut tobacco.
  • The SFOA prohibits selling or supplying any tobacco and/or vaping product to someone under the age of 19 years old.
What is considered school property?
  • School property includes the school building itself, any additional buildings related to the operation of the school, the property upon which the school building and additional buildings are located, play fields, parking lots and any other such facilities associated with the use of the property as a school.
  • School property does not include adjoining private properties, or the municipal right of way associated with any nearby streets.
What about vehicles?
  • Once any vehicle drives onto school property smoking or vaping are prohibited inside the vehicle.
  • Additionally, SFOA prohibits smoking and vaping in a motor vehicle if there is someone less than 16 years old in the vehicle. It applies to both moving and stationary vehicles, and applies to motor vehicles, regardless of whether any window, sunroof, door or other feature of the vehicle is open.
Is possession of tobacco or vaping products by someone under the age of 19 years legal?
  • The SFOA doesn’t prohibit the possession of any tobacco and vapour products by someone under the age of 19 years old. However, to sell or supply a tobacco or vapour product to someone under the age of 19 years old is an offense and the person selling and/or supplying the tobacco or vaping product can be charged under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017.
  • Someone giving a tobacco or a vapour product to someone else without any exchange of money would be considered supplying (e.g., a student sharing or giving another student a cigarette).
Who could be charged for smoking or vaping on school property?
  • Anyone smoking or holding lit tobacco or inhaling/exhaling vapour from an electronic cigarette or holding an activated e-cigarette on school property at any time can be charged, including a student, a teacher or school board employee, a contractor, a visitor, a parent or a guardian.
  • Anyone smoking or vaping inside a vehicle situated on school property.
What are the obligations of school administrators re: compliance with the SFOA?
  • Ensure that SFOA signs are posted on all exits and entrances providing access or potential access to the school building or additional buildings.
  • Ensure that SFOA signs are posted in or on all washrooms in the school.
  • Advise all students, staff, parents and visitors that smoking and vaping are not permitted on school property twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Ensure that a person who does not comply with the “no smoking/no vaping” regulations does not remain on school grounds.
What can happen if a school administrator doesn’t follow their obligations under the SFOA?

A school administrator, as well as any employer or operator of the school in question could be charged for not following the noted obligations (Question #8 above).

Are schools permitted to set up a “smoking/vaping area” for students or staff?
  • No. The SFOA does not permit a school to set up a smoking/vaping area on school property.
  • If a smoking area is set up on school property, school administrators may be charged under the SFOA, in addition to any persons found smoking/vaping in the area.
What if the violator is a non-student?
  • If you encounter a non-student smoking or vaping on school property, advise the person that smoking and vaping are not allowed on school property and give them the option of either putting out the tobacco or the vaping product, or leaving school property.
  • Should the person refuse to either put out the tobacco or the vaping product or leave school property, have the witness to the violation fill out a School Incident Report form with as much information as possible and an assigned Tobacco Enforcement Officer will follow up action.
What are the set fines under the SFOA?
  • Smoking or vaping on school property: $305.
  • Selling any tobacco or vaping product to someone under the age of 19 years old : $490.
  • Supplying any tobacco or vaping product to someone under the age of 19 years old : $490.
  • Smoking or vaping inside a vehicle situated on school property : $305.
  • Court costs and victim surcharges are included to the charges above.

Enforcement Protocol for School Administrators

What can a school administrator do if a student violates the SFOA?
  • While the tobacco enforcement officers (TEOs) are responsible for ensuring compliance of the SFOA, a school administrator may wish to try and address this issue initially within the confines of the school.
    • Please note that unless the violation is reported as per the School Incident Report form, data for the number of violations at your school cannot be captured. This will result in a discrepancy between the number of “actual violations” and “reported violations”.
    • If you are hoping to address the issue internally, but still wish to ensure the data is captured, you can complete the School Incident Report form and indicate in the “Occurrence Details” section that this matter was dealt with internally and that no further action is required. Through this approach the data will be captured, and the incident report will be documented.
  • The school administration can develop an internal progressive discipline policy and work with the student within that discipline policy. 
    • If you choose to refer future violation to the Tobacco Enforcement Officers, it is recommended that you provide all related documents (e.g., internal actions) to the Officer pertaining to all previous incidents with the respective student at your school.  This information will be helpful to determine next steps and build off the actions the school has already attempted.
  • If a school administration is of the view that the violation would be better addressed by a tobacco enforcement officer,
    • report the incident by completing the School Incident Report form and the assigned Tobacco Enforcement Officer will follow-up as soon as conveniently possible, in which point the school administrator and the TEO can assess the next steps.
What is an “internal progressive discipline policy”?
  • As per the Ontario Ministry of Education, an internal progressive discipline policy is a whole-school approach that utilizes a continuum of prevention programs, interventions, supports, and consequences to address inappropriate student behavior and to build upon strategies that promote and foster healthy relationships, making good choices, continuing their learning, and achieving success.
  • Many school boards have their own internal progressive discipline policy. Please consult your respective school board internal policies for further information.
  • If you require support in the review or the creation of an internal progressive discipline policy, please reach out to tobacco@ottawa.ca.
When a School Incident Report form is submitted, is it possible to request a copy of the information for the school’s records?

Once the form is submitted, the Tobacco Enforcement Officers receive a truncated version of the form which will not be shareable with the original sender. We therefore cannot provide a copy of the submitted form back to the school. If the school staff submitting the form wishes to retain a copy of the information submitted for their own files, they would be responsible to print the computer screen content prior to submitting the form.

Can school administrators submit more than one person observed on the same School Incident Report form?
  • As per the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), the City of Ottawa (including Ottawa Public Health and By-law and Regulatory Services) must protect the personal privacy and follow rules and guidelines in collecting, using and disclosing, to others, personal information. If there are charges laid, the information provided in the School Incident Report form is part of the court proceedings for that one person observed and charged, and any other party’s information cannot be on the same form, as there would be a risk of a possible violation of MFIPPA.
  • Even if the smoking/vaping incident involved multiple students, the school administrators will need to complete and to submit a School Incident Report form for each of the person observed.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact tobacco@ottawa.ca.

Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 public disclosure of tobacco and vapour products sales offences

Disclaimer Regarding Automatic Prohibition

Prospective buyers of tobacco retail dealer premises are strongly encouraged to contact the local Public Health Unit to confirm premises conviction history. A premises with two or more tobacco sales convictions against any owner (past or present) at that address within a five-year period is subject to a Notice of Prohibition Against the Sale, Storage and Delivery of Tobacco Products (known as an automatic prohibition or “AP”).

Section 22 of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA, 2017) states that upon becoming aware that there are two or more convictions against any owner for tobacco sales offences committed at the same place within a five-year period, the Ministry of Health (MOH) shall notify the owner(s) or occupant of the place that the sale, storage, and delivery of tobacco products is prohibited at the place.

The MOH accepts requests from Public Health Units for automatic prohibitions where owner(s) of the business was/were convicted of tobacco sales offences on two occasions within a five year period. The SFOA, 2017 convictions report published on Public Health Units’ websites lists all owner related tobacco sales convictions that are eligible for an automatic prohibition. Please note that automatic prohibitions do not apply to vapour products sales convictions.
