Smoking Cessation

In Canada about 18% of the population over age 12 still smokes (Statistics Canada, 2018), despite the fact that smoking accounts for about 30% of all cancer deaths in Canada (Canadian Cancer Society, 2020). Quitting smoking can be challenging, but it’s never too late and the benefits are more than worth it! Plus, there is evidence that you can more than double your chances of quitting successfully with support (Canadian Cancer Society, 2020).

Meet with one of our Chronic Disease Management Nurses or Health Promoter to receive counseling and information, to help you along your journey to quit and improve the quality of your life.
