Canada was chosen as part of the original four ITC survey countries because it is a world-leader in tobacco control policies, such as smoke-free laws. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control was signed on July 15, 2003, and later ratified on November 26, 2004.

Tobacco Control Policies
Tobacco Legislation includes a complete advertising ban in 1991, warning labels on cigarette packages, and a minimum national purchasing age of 18, although three provinces have raised their minimums to 19 years old.
Cigarette ignition propensity regulations were implemented in June 2005.
Light/mild descriptors were banned in February 2007.
