ITC Project

Canada

In 2002, ITC launched surveys in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States, referred to as the Four Country (4C) Wave 1 Survey. Canada was chosen as part of the original four ITC countries because it is a world leader in tobacco control policies, having been the first country to introduce graphic warning labels on cigarette packages in 2000. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) was signed on July 15, 2003, and later ratified on November 26, 2004.

In 2016, the ITC Project received funding to evaluate policies that regulate vaporized nicotine products (VNPs), including electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), at the population level by examining use and the evolution of the VNP marketplace in Australia, Canada, the United States, and England, referred to as the Four Country Tobacco and E-cigarette (4CE) Wave 1 Survey. More information about the tobacco and e-cigarette study is available at: http://www.itcproject.org/node/152.
