On July 1, 2016, UHN will be a smoke-free environment. This means the smoking of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes on UHN-owned grounds is prohibited.

This initiative serves two purposes: to create smoke-free grounds and support those who are looking to quit with cessation resources.

This initiative is consistent with our goals of providing a healthy and safe environment for our patients, visitors and staff, and it's also required to maintain compliance with Ontario law (Smoke-Free Ontario Act).

UHN's smoke-free policy applies to employees, medical staff, volunteers, patients, visitors, learners and subcontractors. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring compliance with smoke-free grounds.

Recently, UHN News sat down with the Smoking Cessation Steering Committee Chairs, Dr. John Granton and Dr. Meredith Giuliani, to answer a few frequently asked questions about this initiative. Find out what they had to say in the video above.

Stay tuned for smoking cessation myth busting with Drs. Granton and Giuliani.
