Effective May 31, 2008, there are new restrictions on how tobacco products can be displayed, handled and promoted in a retail store. These are new rules that need to be reviewed carefully.
Effective May 31, 2008 s. 3.1(2) of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act requires that: No person shall display or permit the display of tobacco products in any place where tobacco products are sold or offered for sale in any manner that will permit a consumer to view any tobacco product before purchasing the tobacco.
