On December 19th, 2020, Health Canada published a proposed Concentration of Nicotine in Vaping Products Regulations.

If implemented, the regulations would allow for a maximum of 20 mg/mL nicotine within vaping products sold in Canada. The Vaping Products Labelling and Packaging Regulations (VPLPR) would also be amended to align with this new limit.

This new proposed limit of 20 mg/mL aligns with the permitted European Union nicotine concentrations.


Stakeholders may submit comments concerning the proposed Regulations until March 4, 2021.

The proposed Regulations and its associated Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement can be found here.


The proposed Regulations, including the proposed amendment to the VPLPR, would come into force 15 days after the day they are published in Canada Gazette, Part II.
