Plain Packaging Canada

Canada’s Plain Packaging Threat – Sign the Petition By Sept. 6, 2018

If Canada’s Bill S-5 is allowed to pass, Plain & Standardized Packaging (PSP) for all tobacco products (including premium cigars) will become a reality in Canada. Under the proposed new law, all tobacco products shall be standardized with a single color, type-face, and packaging.

Exempting Premium Cigars from Plain & Standardized Packaging has still a few days to be heard, the consultation period ends on September 6, 2018!
