Tobacco Products Labelling Regulations (Cigarettes and Little Cigars)

COMMENTS: The Tobacco Products Labelling Regulations (Cigarettes and Little Cigars) set forth the provisions governing the labeling of packages of cigarettes and little cigars. These packages were previously governed by the Tobacco Products Information Regulations, issued in 2000. The new stand-alone regulations for cigarette and little cigar packages set forth the rules for three required messages: health warning labels, health information messages, and toxic emissions statements. Notably, the new regulations no longer require the disclosure of toxic constituent amounts on product packaging. In addition, pictorial health warnings must now cover 75% of the two principal display areas. This version is in both English and French and contains amendments through June 21, 2018.

To the best of our knowledge, all laws provided here are in effect as of December 5, 2023 unless otherwise noted.
