Did you know?
The Smoke-Free Ontario Act came into force on May 31, 2006.
The act prohibits smoking in enclosed workplaces and enclosed public places in Ontario in order to protect workers and the public from the hazards of second-hand smoke.
How does this affect LMHC tenants living in apartment buildings?
Smoking is prohibited in common areas of condominiums, apartment buildings and college and university residences. Examples of common areas include elevators, stairwells, hallways, parking garages, laundry facilities, lobbies, exercise areas and party or entertainment rooms.
What LMHC’s responsibilities?
Ensure that everyone is aware that smoking is prohibited in common areas.
Remove ashtrays and any object that serves as one.
Ensure no one smokes in the common areas of these residences.
Post No Smoking signs at all entrances, exits, washrooms, and other appropriate locations. For information on acquiring required signage, please contact your local public health unit.
How are the Smoke-Free Ontario laws enforced?
Local public health units will carry out inspections and investigate complaints in apartments, condominiums and college and university campuses in order to enforce the act.
What are the penalties if LMHC doesn’t follow the Smoke-Free laws?
There is no maximum corporate fine listed for contravention of this section of the act, meaning the fine amount would be left up to a justice of the peace. An individual could be subject to a maximum fine of $5,000.
For more information, please contact your local public health unit.
