Enforcement

Saskatchewan Health Authority Public Health Inspectors and Tobacco Enforcement Officers are responsible for enforcing The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act and The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Regulations. Their work is guided by a progressive enforcement model that includes: education and awareness, written warnings, issuance of summary offence tickets and formal court appearances.

Tobacco and vapour product compliance and enforcement activities include:

  • A youth test shopper program that assesses retailer compliance with tobacco, vapour product, and related product sales to youth;
  • A retail inspection program that examines retailer compliance with restrictions including display of tobacco and vapour products, advertising, and promotion.
  • Following up on complaints of smoking and vaping in enclosed public places.
  • Ensuring businesses post appropriate and required signage as prescribed in the Act and regulations.
