Patterns and Trends report

photo of the patterns and trends report pageThe sixth edition of the Tobacco Use in Canada: Patterns and Trends report was released in May 2015. This report pulls together existing data to create a “big picture” overview of tobacco use patterns and trends in Canada, with the aim of enabling those responsible for tobacco control policies, programs, advocacy, research, evaluation and surveillance to assess progress and to update action plans, based on the best possible evidence about tobacco use in our country.

A special topic supplement on the use of e-cigarettes has been included with the report, providing the first national data on e-cigarette use. 

The 2015 report, along with the 100+ figures and tables and data tables (including confidence intervals for estimates), are available for individual download and use in order to enable the extraction of precise numbers.
