Smoke-Free Ontario Act

By-law & Licensing Home

Smoking By-law
The Province of Ontario passed new legislation that makes it illegal to smoke on and within 20 metres of all publicly owned playgrounds, splash pads, sports fields, tennis courts and basketball courts. More information about the new legislation can be found online via the Province of Ontario and York Region websites:

  • Province of Ontario
  • York Region

    York Region Tobacco Control Officers conduct inspections to ensure all enclosed workplaces and public places are smoke-free. Inspections are also conducted at tobacco vendors to ensure that they do not sell or supply tobacco products to youth and that they adhere to display, promotion and handling restrictions.

    Complaints pertaining to violations of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act will be investigated. Calls can be anonymous and should be directed to York Region Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653. For more information, visit
