Health Canada’s (HC) Tobacco Products Directorate has embarked on a public consultation to inform a mandated legislative review of the vape-related aspects of the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act (TVPA), which was last amended in 2020. Even though the public is invited to comment, HC is sending confusing messages with this process, which suggest it is somewhat confused.
Not long ago [...] HC asked for input on proposals to further restrict flavored vaping products. The responses to that consultation are still being processed and no report has been published. Now, there is another consultation that haphazardly asks questions of respondents as if HC was starting back at square one.
