A tobacconist is a business that primarily sells specialty tobacco products. Specialty tobacco products include cigars, pipes and humidors but does not include cigarettes. Under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA, 2017), tobacconists are required to be registered with their local Board of Health.
