Health Unit Wants Smoke Free Housing Units

Our Health Unit is calling on multi-unit housing providers to create smoke free policies. 

Officials say there are benefits for both tenants and landlords who ask people to take their smoking outside. 

The public health agency also says that implementing a smoke free policy will help reduce the risk of fire, make it safer for residents and is cheaper to renovate than an apartment that's been smoked in.
