Smoke-free Housing Ontario is a continuing project of the Smoking & Health Action Foundation supported by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care


Public health units and health organizations from across the province are working together to reduce the exposure of second-hand smoke in multi-unit housing.  Collectively, we endorse the following policies and actions:

  • Encourage all landlords and property owners of multi-unit housing to voluntarily adopt no-smoking policies in their rental units or properties;
  • All future private sector rental properties and buildings developed in Ontario should be smoke-free from the onset;
  • Encourage public/social housing providers to voluntarily adopt no-smoking policies in their units and/or properties;
  • All future public/social housing developments in Ontario should be smoke-free from the onset.
  • Encourage the Ontario Ministry of Housing to develop government policy and programs to facilitate the provision of smoke-free housing.
