The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA, 2017) has certain exemptions that allow specialty vape stores to display, promote and test/sample vapour products. To access this exemption, Ontario Regulation 268/18 under the SFOA, 2017 specifies that a retail establishment must be registered as a specialty vape store with the local board of health.

Complete the Specialty Vape Store Application Form and send to sfoaapplications@toronto.ca to register with Toronto Public Health.

If there is a change to any of the information provided on the Application for Registration, it must be reported to the local board of health immediately.
