Outdoor Public Spaces

We are currently working on this initiative with local municipalities in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society.

The Town of Hantsport passed their Protection from Second Hand Smoke By-Law November 5, 2013. They are the first municipality in Nova Scotia to include bus stops in an outdoor public spaces by-law.


This by-law demonstrates Hantsport’s commitment to a healthier community, says Kelly Cull, Manager of Government and Partner Relations. The mayor and council demonstrated considerable leadership and progressive thinking on this issue, and enacted a strong by-law that will protect all citizens from the hazards of second hand smoke.
