Providing a smoke-free environment

Carleton University’s Smoking Policy restricts smoking to outdoor Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs) only.

Starting February 1, 2008, Carleton University safety officers launched a campus-wide enforcement campaign, targeting smoking in unauthorized areas. Carleton’s smoking policy upholds the university’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy smoke-free environment for the campus community.

Tobacco use is the biggest preventable cause of death and disease in Ontario. It kills 13,000 Ontarians each year. As of May 31, 2006, through the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, the Ontario Government protects the health of all Ontarians by prohibiting smoking in enclosed workplaces and enclosed public places.

Violations of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act can result in fines as high as $65.

Readers can learn about the university’s DSAs by visiting carleton.ca/campus or carleton.ca/patrol and clicking on “University policies”.
