Smoke-free Brantford

It is now illegal to smoke near all playgrounds and sports fields. In Brantford, smoking on all municipal properties is restricted.

Please be mindful of this law and obey all signage. Tobacco Control Officers will conduct inspections and enforce this smoking legislation. Areas include:

  • arenas
  • festival and events located on City property
  • park playgrounds
  • picnic shelters and pavilions
  • properties including City Hall, libraries and community centres
  • splash pads and outdoor pools
