Vaping is the inhaling of a vapor created by an electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) or other vaping device.
E-cigarettes are battery-powered smoking devices. They have cartridges filled with a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. The liquid is heated into a vapor, which the person inhales. That's why using e-cigarettes is called "vaping."
Vaping prevention & Quitting Resources
Youth & Young Adult Vaping Project
Vaping has become increasingly prevalent among youth in recent years. We have resources for families, coaches and teachers to help address and prevent youth vaping.
In partnership with Heart & Stroke, we surveyed youth across Canada to better understand vaping behaviour, experiences, and product preferences among regular e-cigarette users between the ages of 16 and 24, in order to help develop policy to help prevent youth vaping.
Exploring Youth Vaping/Smoking Prevention and Cessation in PEI
A study aimed to increase knowledge of the gaps and opportunities in PEI nicotine prevention and cessation programs/services for youth (aged 11-21) and increase awareness of the factors that help youth in PEI live a nicotine-free lifestyle and mitigate the toxic stress caused by nicotine addiction.
