Smoke-Free Housing in Multi-Unit Dwellings

BC Clean Air Coalition Position Statement

Many British Columbians living in multi-unit dwellings including apartments,townhouses and condos are involuntarily exposed to a dangerous health hazard in their homes – second-hand tobacco smoke.

This Position Statement sets out the facts on second-hand smoke in the home and presents a series of actions and recommendations to various parties to address the very large deficit in available smoke-free multi-unit housing in BC.
