This is the new home of Tobacco Use in Canada. If you have been redirected here by clicking on a reference/citation, please see our previous reports section to obtain the proper citations for older editions or to request an electronic copy.

Tobacco Use in Canada pulls together existing data to give users the big picture of tobacco use patterns and trends in Canada to enable those responsible for tobacco control policies, programs, advocacy, research, evaluation and surveillance to assess progress and to update action plans.

The report uses data from national surveys conducted by Health Canada and Statistics Canada since 1999, with a focus on the current year.

The report has three sections:

  1. Tobacco Use among Canadian Adults includes demographic trends in prevalence and consumption, use of tobacco products other than cigarettes, as well as summary measures at the provincial level.
  2. Quitting Smoking includes quit rates, plans to quit, quit attempts, quit success, and use of various forms of cessation assistance.
  3. Tobacco Use among Canadian Youth includes prevalence and consumption, sources of cigarettes, use of other tobacco products, and quitting-related measures.

You can download PDF versions of the most recent editions or contact us to request an electronic copy of a previous report (2009-2014).
