Ban all candy- and fruit-flavoured tobacco products

End the flavour

Cigars, cigarillos, water pipe and chew tobacco are widely available in fruit and candy flavours such as grape, cherry, mango, strawberry, ice cream and vanilla. These candy-flavoured products are designed to target youth and encourage youth smoking.

Help end the flavour before tobacco hooks a new generation.

Challenge your MLA to ban all candy- and fruit-flavoured tobacco products.

Protect your skin


Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer diagnosed in Canada.

When you expose your skin to UV rays – whether from the sun or tanning beds – you can damage your skin or eyes over time and increase your chances of getting skin cancer.

You're at risk whether your skin is fair, medium or dark, but you can do your part to protect your skin and reduce your risk of skin cancer.

  • Check the UV index.
  • Reduce sun exposure.
  • Seek shade or create your own shade.
  • Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Wear sunglasses.
  • Use sunscreen.
  • Protect yourself when playing or working outdoors.
  • Protect babies and children.
  • Don’t use indoor tanning equipment.
