Status: Open until November 29, 2019
Ministry responsible: Health


To address the recent increase in vaping, smoking, and tobacco use – especially among youth – we’re conducting a review of the Tobacco and Smoking Reduction Act.

This review will help us develop strategies to protect Albertans from the harms of tobacco, vaping and tobacco-like products (herbal shisha in hookah/waterpipe), and assess the effectiveness of current legislation, which does not address vaping.

Get involved

We want to hear feedback on:

  • gaps and issues with Alberta’s current tobacco control legislation
  • possible changes in legislation to reduce harms related to the use of tobacco, vaping and tobacco-like products

Online survey

Provide your feedback by taking the online survey until November 29, 2019.

In person stakeholder meetings

MLA Jeremy Nixon is visiting communities across the province in November, on behalf of the Minister of Health, to hear from health stakeholders or advocates, health experts and business owners/managers.

Meetings will be held in:

  • Edmonton
  • Calgary
  • Red Deer
  • Lethbridge
  • Grande Prairie
  • Fort McMurray

If you are a retailer, business, or health advocate and are interested in meeting, please contact

Summary notes will be posted here following meetings with tobacco and vaping businesses.


Your input will be used to guide legislative and regulation updates in Alberta.
