Cigarette package health warnings

Cigarette package health warnings in Canada have improved over time:

  • In 1989, regulations required a series of 4 text warnings covering 20% of the package front and back.
  • In 1994, regulations required text warnings in black and white to cover the top 35% of the package front and back.
  • In 2001, Canada became the first country to require picture warnings and the first country to mandate 50% of the package front and back.
  • In 2012, picture warnings were required to cover 75% of the package front and back. The Society strongly supports these warnings.
