Over the past 25 years, the efforts of many people and organizations have resulted in a reduction in tobacco use in Canada, including in Newfoundland and Labrador. Despite significant progress smoking remains the leading cause of preventable illness, disability and premature death in Canada. Reducing the tremendous toll caused by tobacco use is a shared responsibility.
As a leader in the health sector, Eastern Health is committed to providing a tobacco and smoke-free environment that promotes and supports the health of its employees and the people we serve.
Keeping the healthcare services we deliver to you private and confidential is one of our main goals at Eastern Health.
