A friendly reminder that smoking is prohibited on Halton Healthcare hospital properties, and in personal vehicles while on hospital property.
The Halton Region Health Department actively enforces the Smoke-Free Ontario Act with enforcement officers which may include conducting random checks of our properties to ensure compliance. In addition, Halton Healthcare Security Staff may report offenders to the Region, resulting in an issuance of a Provincial Offence Notice, and upon conviction, could see offenders subject to a fine of $250 to $305. Please note the sidewalks adjacent to the municipal roads near our facilities are not considered hospital property, and therefore not subject to the Act and Halton Healthcare’s policy.
Thank you for helping us maintain a healthy, smoke-free environment at Halton Healthcare.
