Let's Clear the Air

BRANTFORD, ON – As part of the “Let’s Clear the Air” campaign, the City of Brantford reminds residents that smoking or vaping of any substance on City-owned properties is prohibited under the Smoking – Clean Air By-Law (Municipal Code Chapter 570). The by-law outlines that smoking tobacco or cannabis or vaping of any substance is not permitted at:

  • City owned administrative buildings, including parking lots
  • City-owned recreational centres
  • City-owned sports facilities
  • Parks
  • Sidewalks on City building property or within a public park
  • Trails

A ticket and fine will be issued to those who do not follow the law with a maximum fine of $5,000.
Smoking or vaping is permitted on private property that is subject to the landowner policies and/or permissions, as well as on sidewalks adjacent to a City street.

The “Let’s Clear the Air” campaign runs throughout July and includes online and print advertising, an educational video, transit shelters, billboards, and social media.
