"Bill S-5, An Act to amend the Tobacco Act and the Non-smokers’ Health Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts (short title: Tobacco and Vaping Products Act) was introduced in the Senate on 22 November 2016 by Senator Peter Harder. The bill proposes amendments that would implement a legislative framework under the Tobacco Act for vaping products. Among other things, the bill: prohibits the sale of vaping products (as defined in the bill) to minors, including sending a vaping product to a minor; prohibits the use in vaping products of flavours that appeal to youth; requires manufacturers to submit information about a vaping product to the Minister of Health before the product can be sold; restricts advertising of vaping products; and increases penalties for tobacco-related offences. The bill also introduces provisions to permit the implementation of plain packaging requirements for tobacco products"--Background, p. 1.
