In November 2016, the Canadian Government put forth Bill S-5, a legislation aiming to put restrictions on vaping in order to dissuade minors and non-smokers from using e-cigarettes.

Bill S-5 is still awaiting Royal Assent, but the Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) is wasting no time in taking action against the passing of this legislation. In a report by the CCF, the benefits of vaping for current and former smokers is outlined, as well as the lack of evidence that e-cigarettes lead teens and non-smokers to take up analog cigarettes.
