The University recognizes that the change to a smoke-free campus will be welcome news to some members of the community and it has the potential to cause concern for some others. Together, with the Joint Health and Safety Committee, a decision has been made to move towards being a smoke-free campus by July 1, 2019.

  • A smoke-free campus provides many health benefits including preventing the effects of secondhand smoke.
  • The campaign will have two phases to help smokers adjust.
  • Institutions including Western will be smoke-free by July 2019.
