Second Hand Smoke

There is no safe level of second-hand smoke!

Non-smokers in a smoking environment are still at risk for developing heart disease, lung disease, and other respiratory infections.

How can I protect myself from second hand smoke? 

In Alberta, it is illegal to smoke in workplaces (including work vehicles) and public places-including restaurants, bars and outdoor patios. Our legislation page has more information on smoking restrictions in Alberta.  

My workplace does not enforce Alberta’s legislation on smoke free workplaces, what can I do? 

If your workplace is in violation of Alberta’s Tobacco Reduction Act you can report it to the Tobacco Enforcement Unit of the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission by calling 1-800-577-2522.
