Tobacco and E-Cigarette Convictions

We are responsible for the education and enforcement of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act and the Electronic Cigarettes Act. The acts are enforced by tobacco enforcement officers (designated provincial offences officers) who inspect tobacco and e-cigarette retailers for compliance with sales of tobacco and e-cigarettes. Tobacco enforcement officers conduct different types of inspections of tobacco and e-cigarette retailers including working with youth test shoppers and conducting routine checks throughout the year.

When a tobacco or e-cigarette retailer is charged with a sales offence and a conviction is obtained, the conviction information is posted on this page.

Smoke-Free Ontario Act Convictions

Convictions are listed for a period of five years from the conviction date. 

Eligible for Automatic Prohibition: Convictions that can be applied towards an Automatic Prohibition (AP) for the sale, storage and delivery of tobacco products for a minimum of six months.

An Automatic Prohibition (AP) prevents a business from the sale, storage and delivery of tobacco products for a minimum of six months. Certain offences under the law can be applied towards an AP. A business that is convicted of two or more of these offences within a five-year period may be subject to an AP.

Disclaimer

Prospective buyers of tobacco retail dealer premises are strongly encouraged to contact the local public health unit to confirm premises conviction history. A premises with two or more convictions against the owner at that address is subject to a Notice of Prohibition Against the Sale, Storage and Delivery of Tobacco Products (known as an automatic prohibition or “AP”).

Section 16 of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act (SFOA) states that upon becoming aware that there are two or more convictions against any person for tobacco sales offences committed at the same place within a five year period, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) shall notify the owner(s) or occupant of the place that the sale, storage and delivery of tobacco products is prohibited at the place.

The MOHLTC accepts requests from public health units for automatic prohibitions where owner(s) of the business was/were convicted on two occasions rather than employees. The SFOA convictions report published on public health units’ websites lists all owner-related tobacco sales convictions that are eligible for an automatic prohibition.
