The Development of a Smoke-Free Housing Policy in the Region of Waterloo

 
In April, 2010, the Region of Waterloo became the first Regional Municipality in Ontario to implement a policy with the goal of making all Regionally-owned and operated Community Housing units 100% smoke-free. The L.E.A.R.N. document The development of a smoke-free housing policy in the Region of Waterloo: Key success factors and lessons learned from practice provides a detailed description of the steps taken to develop, implement and evaluate this policy. The Health Communication Unit’s (THCU) eight steps for policy development were used to guide the policy development process and these serve as the basis of the structure of the resource. The resource aims to support public health practitioners who are interested in implementing a similar smoke-free policy in their own community. Throughout the document key success factors and lessons learned are identified.
