Age

Customers must be at least 19 years of age to be sold electronic cigarettes and their component parts (e.g. battery, atomizer).

Before selling electronic cigarettes and their component parts to any person who appears to be less than 25 years old, you must request identification (I.D.) and determine that the person is at least 19 years old.

The Electronic Cigarettes Act does not stipulate a minimum age for an employee who is selling electronic cigarettes and their component parts. However, the Ministry of Labour, pursuant to regulations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act set the minimum age of 14 years old to be eligible to work in Ontario workplaces.

It is the responsibility of all persons selling electronic cigarettes regardless of age, to be in compliance with the ECA and other applicable laws, including  local municipal by-laws.
