(September 14, 2018) A new smoking bylaw will come into effect for Haligonians on Oct. 1, which will ban any kind of smoking or vaping on municipal properties, including sidewalks, except for areas designated by the municipality.

Out of concern that certain businesses might be disadvantaged if not near a designated smoking area, Restaurants Canada met with municipal officials to ensure that the bylaw would not create an uneven playing field. They provided assurances that any bar or restaurant operator may request a designated smoking area, provided they meet the specified clearance to entrances, open windows and air intakes.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can send an email to Luc Erjavec, Restaurants Canada Vice President, Atlantic Canada, at lerjavec@restaurantscanada.org.
