The sale of vaping products with a flavour or aroma other than tobacco will be prohibited in Quebec, the health minister announced today.

Starting Oct. 31, the government will also be limiting the maximum nicotine concentration of all vaping products sold in the province to 20 mg/ml.

In April, Health Minister Christian Dubé first sought to amend regulations linked to the application of the Tobacco Control Act with the hope of making vaping less appealing to minors.

Dubé emphasized that point Wednesday, saying the latest regulations are designed to protect young people from the “harmful and worrisome effects of vaping.”
