BILL 44: MORE THAN JUST DISPLAY,
MANDATORY DISPLAY AND THE 9-METER PERIMETER
In fact, the operator of a place or facility that falls under the Tobacco control act must indicate, using posters installed so that they may be seen by the people who frequent this place or installation, that smoking is prohibited. In particular, the posters must clearly outline the area where smoking is prohibited, as well as the 9-meter perimeter, if applicable.
See our online brochure that includes all our Law 44 display products.
VIOLATIONS AND FINES FOR THE OPERATOR
According to the Tobacco control act, failure to indicate those areas where smoking is prohibited using posters could cost you a $500 to $12,500 fine for the first offence and up to $25,000 for a recurring offence.

SUGGESTIONS OF MEASURES
FOR THE 9-METER TOBACCO BILL
Here are some suggestions that may facilitate compliance with the Law 44 smoking ban within specified areas and a 9-meter radius.
These precautions can reduce the possibility of legal proceedings against an operator for an offence related to the Tobacco control act.
Place posters on the grounds and around the areas involved, to clearly outline the places where smoking is prohibited;
BETTER ASHTRAY PLACEMENT
Remove all ashtrays located near the doors and focus on free-standing ashtrays outside the 9-meter area;
Outline the 9-meter areas (stickers on the ground, removable signs, stickers on doors, posters, etc.) to eliminate any ambiguity about their scope, while considering the winter period;
CLEAR VISUAL DISPLAY
Use posters near the doors and access points, with emphasis on the use of visual signage (logos, figures, pictures, plans, etc.) big enough to attract attention.
Also display using stickers inside, outside the doors involved;
If permitted, set up smoking areas (benches, ashtrays, shelters, etc.) away from the 9-meter areas, and make them known to attract smokers.
