ABOUT US

Members of the Smoke-Free Multi-Unit Dwelling Workgroup of Smoke-Free Nova Scotia created this website by adapting, with permission, the smokefreehousingbc.ca website created by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, with funding from the BC Healthy Living Alliance and supported by ActNow BC.

 

Smoke-Free Nova Scotia is a provincial coalition committed to the achievement of a tobacco-free Nova Scotia.

 

Our goal is the elimination of tobacco use in Nova Scotia.

 

Our objectives are:

 

  • To support, encourage or undertake initiatives which discourage tobacco use in order to promote health.

 

  • To advocate for and promote healthy public policy related to tobacco control.

 

  • To increase public awareness of tobacco and health issues.

 

  • To support a comprehensive and collaborative approach to tobacco control.
