Saskatchewan to raise age of purchasing tobacco

November 14, 2023

The government of Saskatchewan has raised the minimum age to legally purchase tobacco and vaping products to 19, aligning with existing restrictions on liquor and cannabis sales in the province. Bill 147, an Act to amend The Tobacco and Vapour Products Control Act will come into force at a later date.

According to a media release, the Ministry of Health consulted with external stakeholders, including tobacco and vapour product retailers, tobacco, and vapour product manufacturers, health advocacy organizations, and First Nations and Métis groups in developing the bill.
