Creating tobacco-free futures: Alberta's strategy to prevent and reduce tobacco use 2012-2022

Description

Tobacco use in Alberta declined significantly following the introduction of the Alberta Tobacco Reduction Strategy in 2002, but still remains a significant contributor to health issues in the province with about 3,000 deaths annually attributed to the result of tobacco use. This new strategy builds on the momentum of the previous strategy and sets out a commitment to taking steps to help people quit using tobacco, reducing harmful second-hand smoke exposure and making tobacco products less enticing for youth.
