Reducing Youth Exposure to Tobacco Use in Movies

Region of Peel Council endorsed five key policy actions recommended by the World Health Organization and the Ontario Coalition for Smoke-Free Movies, supported evidence that exposure to smoking in movies influences children and youth to light up cigarettes and progress to regular smoking.
The World Health Organization developed specific policy actions to support smoke-free movies. Forty organizations in Ontario have endorsed the policy actions. The policies set out to:

  1. Require strong anti-smoking ads prior to movies that contain tobacco imagery.
  2. Require adult ratings for movies with tobacco imagery.
  3. Certify no payoffs.
  4. Stop identifying tobacco brands.
  5. Make media productions with smoking ineligible for public subsidy.
