Advocates for a smoke-free British Columbia
About us

Overview

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of (B.C. & Yukon) and the BC Lung Association are committed to reducing tobacco use and exposure to second-hand smoke in B.C. 

As partners in the Clean Air Coalition of BC, our goal is to build a greater understanding of the health hazards of second-hand smoke, generate support for smoke-free environments, and support tobacco-control related activities at both the local and provincial levels. 

Objectives

Through our partnerships with community, regional, and national groups, we aim to reduce the harm caused by tobacco use and exposure to second-hand smoke through:

PREVENTION

Make it harder for young people to start smoking

PROTECTION

Protect people from exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke

CESSATION

Make it easier for those addicted to tobacco products to quit

DENORMALIZATION

Educate the public about how the tobacco industry targets youth
