Canada Proposes Brutal Federal Vape Tax


The Canadian government has proposed the country’s first federal tax on vaping products in its 2022 budget.

The vape tax, part of the proposed federal budget announced Thursday, would take effect Oct. 1—if it passes Parliament as written.

The proposed tax is substantial, and includes an option for Canadian provinces to piggyback on the federal tax with an equally large assessment of their own. The national government is encouraging provinces and territories to pass equally large taxes, which would be administered by federal tax authorities.
