Tobacco Reduction

Are you tobacco user? Did you know one of the best ways to improve your health and the health of those around you is to quit using tobacco?

  • Tobacco use is linked to multiple health issues such as cancer, heart attack and coronary artery disease
  • In BC, smoking continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and disease
  • It’s estimated that 50 percent of smokers die from smoking related diseases
  • Other reasons for quitting

Northern Health’s Tobacco Reduction program works to prevent people from starting to use tobacco, protect residents, patients, physicians and staff from the harmful effects of second hand smoke, and link tobacco users who want to quit to provincial resources.

Make the decision to stop using tobacco products. Use the links and resources on this webpage to start your journey to become smoke free.
