Smoking Policy for the Regional Municipality
of Waterloo

As of November 1st, 1996, Waterloo Region will
have a new regional tobacco by-law -the By-law to Regulate
Smoking in Public Places in the Regional Municipality ofWaterloo.
The new by-law was developed in order to protect children
and non-smokers from the harmful health effects of exposure to
second-hand smoke. The by-law immediately restricts smoking in
many places, and aims to have almost all public and private places
accessible to the public completely smoke-free by the year 2000.
This Regional by-law limits smoking in premises that were not
included in the provincial Tobacco Control Act which came into
effect in November 1994.

The by-law applies equally across all seven
area municipalities in the region and takes the place of any existing
municipal by-laws (unless the municipal by-law is more restrictive
of smoking).
