16 Feb [Health Canada] Consultation – Proposed Concentration of Nicotine in Vaping Products Regulations (Deadline: March 4th, 2021)

Health Canada is seeking comments from health partners, the general public, and interested members of the industry, on the proposed Concentration of Nicotine in Vaping Products Regulations (CNVPR).

The consultation is now open and will close on March 4th, 2021 at 11:59PM EST. You can learn more about the consultation and how to participate here.

Purpose

The purpose of this consultation is to gather feedback on the regulatory proposal to set a maximum nicotine concentration of 20 mg/mL in vaping products that will make them less appealing to youth. The proposed Regulations would:

  • set a maximum nicotine concentration of 20 mg/mL for vaping products sold in Canada;
  • prohibit the packaging and sale of vaping products if the nicotine concentration on the package label exceeds 20 mg/mL; and
  • amend the Vaping Products Labelling and Packaging Regulations (VPLPR) to reference the nicotine concentration limit set out in the proposed CNVPR, while the higher limit of 66 mg/mL would continue to apply to products intended for export.
