The Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy Monitoring Report finds tobacco use among grade 12 youth remains steady at 6%, but smoking use among teenagers remains high.
These are the findings outlined within this year’s Strategy Monitoring Report. This report presents evaluative details about those activities and outcomes of the Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy and describes Strategy infrastructure and interventions, evaluates population-level changes, and explores the contributions of interventions.
To help knowledge of Strategy challenges and achievements, the report includes checks of Ontario’s progress relative around the world Health Organization’s MPOWER standards, and suggestions from the Smoke-Free Ontario Scientific Advisory Committee.
The report concludes that Ontario is constantly on the work faithfully toward becoming the Canadian jurisdiction using the cheapest smoking rate. Smoke-Free Ontario partners support positive alterations in the physical and social environments to avoid and lower tobacco use, assisting to create conditions favorable to decreased initiation, elevated cessation, and, ultimately, reduced smoking in Ontario.
