Making Quit Happen
This report is a comprehensive assessment of smoking cessation in Canada. It was developed by The Lung Association to identify key strengths, gaps, and issues. The goal of this report is to advocate for better access to programs and medications for all Canadians, better training of health care professionals and the addition of systemic cessation measures that highlight both the interim and the final successes. We know that most smokers want to quit and we have a responsibility to help them. The Lung Association hopes that this report will be a springboard for promoting the policy changes required to help all Canadians who want to quit smoking.
