Our smoking policy
We are dedicated to providing an environment that promotes mutual respect and supports the health and well being of students, staff and visitors while ensuring compliance with provincial and municipal laws and regulations.
We have a comprehensive policy, which can be found on the Practices page under “Health, safety and security”, titled Tobacco and Smoking Control.
This policy requires that the use of tobacco products on campus be limited to designated smoking areas.
Niagara College’s policy for the use of tobacco on campus is in compliance with the Province of Ontario’s Smoke Free Ontario Act.
Want to quit smoking?
We wish to support students and staff who wish to quit smoking by providing information and access to cessation programs and services.
Niagara College is a partner in Leave the Pack Behind. Leave The Pack Behind is a tobacco control program that offers young adults smoking and quitting information, personalized support, and quitting resources – all for free. It is funded by the Government of Ontario.
Please smoke in our sheltered, well-ventilated Designated Smoking Areas (DSAs) on campus. DSAs are marked on campus maps.
DSAs at the Welland Campus are: beside the residence; The Core patio; near parking lot “A”; near the south-east entrance to the Rankin Technology Centre and near the south entrance to the Simcoe Building.
DSAs at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus are: near parking lot “B2”; outside of the Residence entrance and within The Armoury patio.
