Nova Scotia’s Smoke-Free Places Act prohibits smoking in all indoor workplaces and public places.  Outdoor licensed areas and patios are also required to be smoke free. Click here for a complete list of places where smoking is prohibited, or call Nova Scotia’s Office of Health Promotion and Protection at 1-800-565-3611.

It is against the law to smoke in a vehicle when a minor (anyone under 19) is present, even if a sunroof, window, or a door is open. The fine for a first offence of smoking in a vehicle while a minor is present is $397.71. 

If you commit an offence under the Smoke-Free Places Act and are convicted you may be fined up to $2,000.
