St. Paul University joins Algonquin College in going smoke-free

By Megan Gillis, Ottawa Citizen, October 15, 2018

Following the example set by Algonquin College last week, St. Paul University is going smoke-free under a new policy that takes effect Wednesday, as recreational cannabis becomes legal.

Algonquin College announced last week that it would be smoke-free under an interim policy from Oct. 15, 2018, until Jan. 1, 2019 while the college conducts “full consultations to understand the potential impact and develop a permanent policy.”

SPU’s new policy similarly bans the use of all forms of cannabis, tobacco or electronic cigarettes anywhere on its property, a move designed to “ensure the health and well-being of its staff and students.”
