On May 23rd 2018, Bill S-5 reached royal assent and Health Canada made a public statement that Vapers, Shop Owners and Manufacturers had been waiting years to see.  Health Canada announced that Canadians now have a legal and safer alternative to Tobacco Cigarettes. The statement was made as the final step of regulations were put into place to keep consumers informed about the products they were purchasing by standardizing labels and regulating certain characteristics of how the bottles are portrayed to reduce the appeal to people of youth.  Although there have been many mixed feelings in the industry about the...

A while ago, I posted some details about VITA (Vaping Industry Trade Association) and their intention.  If you missed that article, you can view it HERE to learn more about who it’s run by and what they want to accomplish for the industry.
