Multi-Unit Dwellings and Homes


In a 2010 poll conducted by Ipsos Reid, 32% of respondents indicated they were regularly exposed to second-hand smoke. If given the choice between identical buildings, 80% of respondents would choose to live where smoking was prohibited.

To help develop both the supply and demand for smoke-free housing in Ontario, public health units are working to: 

  • Raise awareness of the prevalence of drifting smoke, the associated health risks, and the business case for smoke-free housing 
  • Develop partnerships with the housing sector to encourage the adoption of smoke-free housing policies 
  • Support tenants, tenant groups and landlords who have an interest in going smoke-free
