 The Smoke-Free Ontario Act (2006)

The Basics

  • 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.
Condominiums, Apartment Buildings and College and University Residences

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.

Responsibilities of Proprietors
  • Ensure that everyone is aware that smoking is prohibited in common areas.
  • Remove ashtrays and any object that serves as one.
  • Ensure no one smoke in the common areas of these residences.
  • Post 'No Smoking' signs at all entrances, exits, washrooms, and other appropriate locations.

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.


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.
