Manitoba is about to join a growing number of provinces that limit the use of electronic cigarettes.
Legislation is on the way that would amend the Non-Smokers Health Protection Act.
That’s the law that banned smoking in all indoor public places.
Other provinces have or are in the process of restricting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors and their use in some public facilities.
The Winnipeg School Division banned them last year.
Manitoba Healthy Living Minister Deanne Crothers said a new law will restrict how e-cigarette products are promoted, likely ban the sale to minors and their use in some places.
“I do want to create a clear indication to members of the public where it’s appropriate to vape,” said Deanne Crothers.
More details are expected when the proposed legislation is released on June 1.
