Smoking and alcohol regulations

Staff were directed by Council to engage with the community on creating a bylaw that restricts smoking beyond what the Smoke Free Ontario Act allows. In addition, the province has given municipalities the authority to explore whether to allow drinking in public spaces, such as parks.

Engagement with the community was completed between September 30-October 13, 2019 with an online survey and telephone survey.
