In August 2011, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care announced funding for the Pharmacy Smoking Cessation Program; pharmacists provide quit smoking counselling for people receiving the Ontario Drug Benefit.

In October 2012, the Ontario government gave pharmacists the authority to prescribe drugs to help people quit tobacco.

You can also speak to a quit coach at Smokers’ Helpline at 1-877-513-5333. Personalized telephone counselling is available in 100 languages.
