How many people smoke in Canada
Canada introduces plain packaging
From autumn, cigarettes in Canada will only be available in neutral, unadorned packaging. This means that 14 countries are already relying on plain packaging.
From November 9, 2019, cigarettes in Canada will only be sold in a uniform, brown packaging. The Canadian health authority announced on May 1st. The introduction of plain packaging is intended to make smoking less attractive. "The benefits of plain packaging have been clearly demonstrated," says Canadian Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor. "Young people in particular are deterred from smoking."
The approved standard packaging is part of a comprehensive prevention package with which the Canadian government wants to reduce the proportion of smokers to 5 percent by 2035. The proportion of smokers in the Canadian population is currently 17 percent (Switzerland: 27%).
The box as advertising space
The packaging of tobacco products is an important advertising space for the tobacco industry. The colored boxes with the prominently printed brand names are particularly attractive to young people and new consumers and hide the health risks of tobacco consumption.
Standard packaging without the specific brand elements and with large pictorial warnings, together with price increases and extensive advertising bans, are therefore considered to be one of the most effective measures in tobacco prevention. Various studies have already shown that neutral packaging makes smoking or smoking entry less attractive.
Australia was the first country to introduce neutral packaging in 2012. Since then, other countries have followed, including France, Norway, Great Britain and Hungary. Plain packaging has now been implemented or approved in 14 countries, including Canada. At least 15 other countries are currently examining the introduction.
