New Steps Towards a Smoke-Free Ontario

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit would like to make you aware of new amendments to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.

The ammendments will affect the way certain municipal properties are managed. In particular, starting January 1st, 2015, it will be illegal to smoke tobacco within 20 metres of municipally-owned children’s playgrounds (including splash/spray pads) and public sports fields and surfaces (including bleachers) such as baseball diamonds, soccer fields, outdoor rinks, basketball courts, and tennis courts, etc.

You can view the amendments (outlined in grey block lettering) by clicking O.Reg 48/06.
