E-cigarettes in Canada - A Joint Position Statement

The Canadian Lung Association and the Canadian Thoracic Society are concerned about the safety of electronic cigarettes and we believe that urgent measures are needed to 1) ensure that strong regulations and safety standards are in place; and 2) prevent the establishment of a new generation of tobacco and nicotine users. Most importantly, we want to ensure that we do not risk the current and future lung health and overall health of Canadians. To this end, we have developed joint evidence-based recommendations directed to all levels of government and to the Canadian public.
