Tobacco Reduction

Nearly five million Canadians still smoke, although there has been a downward trend for more than two decades in the number of Canadians who smoke. Smoking can lead to a number of diseases in the smoker, including lung cancer, respiratory illness, and cardiovascular disease and stroke. It can also have an impact on the health of non-smokers who are exposed to second-hand smoke.
