May 31: That’s when a province-wide workplace smoking ban takes effect. Smoking will be prohibited in all enclosed workplaces, including buildings, vehicles, underground mines and other enclosed structures. Exceptions:
- First Nations and Métis spiritual or cultural ceremonies when permission is granted
- Designated smoking rooms
- Areas of underground mines located more than 10 m from other workers
- Some self-employed businesses, vehicles and camp living accommodations with permission and when others aren’t present.
