Smoke-Free Housing Ontario
Smoke-Free Housing Ontario helps landlords and property managers increase options for smoke-free living in multi-unit dwellings. Research shows the demand for smoke-free environments is on the rise. Ontarians are protected from second-hand smoke in virtually all enclosed workplaces and public places, yet many are exposed in their own homes as a result of smoke from neighbouring units. Check out www.smokefreehousingon.ca
or call the Tobacco Information Line for more information.
Welcome to Ontario’s first website designed to connect tenants who wish to live in smoke-free accommodations with landlords who have smoke-free properties available for rent. If you are a tenant or new arrival to the Kingston area looking for a smoke-free environment in which to live please check out the Smoke-Free Housing Registry. If you are the owner or property manager of multi-unit properties which are smoke-free and you wish to have your information included on our registry please provide your contact information by completing the online registration form.
Through the Take Control program, KFL&A Public Health helps people become smoke-free through workplace support; employees who want to be smoke-free can have group sessions in their workplace. Call the Tobacco Information Line for more Information.
Whether you are planning a pregnancy, are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have recently given birth, this program can help you and your family become tobacco-free.
