Important Changes to Ontario's Smoking Regulations

The Renfrew County and District Health Unit would like to remind the public of the new regulations to protect the public from tobacco smoke and its harmful effects.

Since January 1, 2015 it is illegal to smoke on bar and restaurant patios, and on (and within 20 metres of) playgrounds, splash pads, and public sports fields and court surfaces (this includes spectator seating areas). Furthermore, it is illegal to smoke tobacco at a special event which is held on a sport field and/or playground.
