Background

The prevalence of non-traditional tobacco use among First Nations (on-and off-reserve), Inuit and Metis population in Canada is significantly higher than the general population. High rates of smoking disproportionately affect the proportion of chronic disease among Ontario Aboriginal communities.

Goals/Aims

This study is focused on understanding how interventions can address non-traditional tobacco use in unique contexts of Aboriginal communities (on- and off- reserve) in Ontario.

Who & what is involved?

Seven Aboriginal communities across Ontario are involved in exploring the unique context of non-traditional tobacco us in their communities and what interventions can be used to address commercial tobacco use.
