Ontario Tobacco Monitoring Report
Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of premature death in Ontario with 16,000 tobacco-related deaths each year. In 2018, the tobacco-related economic burden in Ontario was estimated to be almost $7.0 billion.
The Ontario Tobacco Monitoring Report 2018 serves as an environmental scan and surveillance report of tobacco use in Ontario. The report summarizes main patterns and trends in tobacco use, including e-cigarette use, and provides an overview of comprehensive tobacco control programming in Ontario for 2017-18. The report aims to inform the development of policies and programs to reduce the impact of tobacco use and nicotine addiction across the province.
