Update June 23, 2021: Nicotine over 20mg/ml is now banned in Canada.

Canada Gazette Part II is released on June 23, 2021. As of July 23, 2021, it's illegal to sell any eJuice with nicotine concentrations above 20mg/ml. We will be removing all products containing nicotine concentration over 20 mg/ml from in-store and our website by July 23, 2021. To help you transition during this time, we will be offering custom purchases of higher mg/ml nicotine until July 8, 2021. You can send your custom order to info@vape360.ca

Update June 18, 2021: It's here.

The flavour ban has officially been introduced. As it stands, if nothing has changed within 75 days of publication, flavoured vape juice will no longer be legal in Canada. Overnight, millions of Canadians will be driven back to tobacco and hundreds of thousands of hardworking people will be out of work.

After six years, Vape360 will be shut down overnight.

A flavour ban is an over-reaction that's not backed by any studies or research - it's simply an opinion hidden behind "protecting the youth" of Canada. Yale has conducted studies that shows banning flavours has the opposite effect that Health Canada claims this bill will solve.

If the Patty Hajdu and the Government of Canada truly cared about the health and wellness of teenagers, why are we not seeing flavour bans on alcohol? Why are we not seeing flavour bans on cannabis? Why are we not seeing flavour bans or age restrictions on energy drinks?

We never have, and never will, support sales of any vaping products to underage people. We've identified which products are popular among younger vapers and taken measures to stop them from even attempting to purchase. From 19+ age verification on every package sent, or purchase made in-store, to a non-negotiable 50% restocking fee on failed verification attempts, right up to placing warnings on product pages - we do everything in our power to ensure our products are in the hands of adults.

So, why the hypocrisy?

If you have any questions, please direct them to the Government of Canada's Health Minister, Patty Hajdu on TwitterFacebook, or by phone at 807-766-2090

Update May 14, 2021:

A petition has been introduced to the House of Commons. With already more than 4,500 signatures, the government must respond on record in the House of Commons. Have you voice heard! Sign it today.

Update March 23, 2021:

It's official, the flavour ban is coming. Please use this form to contact your local representative and stop a ban of flavoured eJuice in Canada.

Well, here we go again!

By now many of you may have heard about an upcoming federal flavour ban proposed by the government of Canada. We want you to know that this is no longer speculation, but now a real threat. The proposed ban will include all flavours that aren’t flavourless, tobacco, or mint. The blackmarket is filling up their bathtubs in anticipation, while our ISO certified labs are begging for help. 

Here's what our full eJuice selection will look like:

Yup. Just that. 

A few weeks ago, we sent an email asking everyone to take a few minutes to head over to the Rights 4 Vapers page and to send an email to Health Canada in response to the Nicotine Cap. Not enough of us took action and now an impending 20mg nicotine cap is on its way.

We have always been open and honest about the state of vaping in Canada. We are not going to change that level of communication with you. A very respected vaping advocate from Quebec, Valerie shared this with many vendors this past week:

"This morning, I had a video conference with Jean-François Harvey (Regional & Policy Advisor for Hajdu) and Tahiya Bakht (Deputy Director of Policy at Office of the Minister of Health) about a time frame for the regulation on flavor's restriction... They intend on going ahead with that... The only reason why it hasn't been published in the Gazette yet is that they are still thinking about «total ban vs tobacco and mint flavors only»...But it should be in the Gazette 1 by May for consultations and, Gazette 2 around September... Doesn't look good..."

Up until this point, we have heard about the flavour ban without anyone from Health Canada wanting to go public and confirm. This is the confirmation that has made it real.

We have said this before and we are going to say it again: 

THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD AND SAVE FLAVOURS IN EJUICE.

So what can you do? 

The Team at Rights4Vapers, has been working over the last 18 months gathering data on what flavours and strengths vapers use to keep them smoke free. Rights4Vapers has created a survey that we would very much appreciate you taking part in. The survey will be closing on April 5th and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to participate.  Click on the link below and it will take you to the R4V site and you can complete the survey. Take 30 seconds of your time to help save flavours.

Take the Survey!

In Ontario we have a history of pushing back regulations that will kill vaping. We know that we can take that energy and spread it across Canada! We have always been fighters that win. 

Please feel free to share with anyone that you know that will be affected by a flavour ban including social media.

Thank you,


Vape360

    I’ve been smoke free for 2 years I enjoy the benefits of vaping a lot

    Honestly, I haven’t started vaping to quit cigarettes. I took on vaping to quit bad drug habits. I hope people realize making an unflavored e juice flavored takes no skill at all. And because I’ve been a customer in the black market before. This ban will only make me and a large amount of the population to take to the streets for flavored ejuices. I’m telling you right now I’m willing to risk it all to go buy flavored e juice from a drug dealer if that’s what it takes. And so will everyone else. All this ban does is put more teens at risk to glucose poisoning from doing it themselves. Its all a selfish act by the Ontario government to recieve more political party votes. They don’t give a shit about our populations sanity and well being. I’m dependent on flavored nicotine, the same way methheads are addicted to their glass pipe. The flavor ban only puts teenagers at risk even more
