Prevalence of Use of Other Tobacco Products

Cigarillos (little cigars) were the most popular tobacco product other than cigarettes, with 3.1% of Canadians reporting use in the past 30 days (Figure 4.1). Cigar use was reported by 1.6% of respondents. Waterpipe (also called hookah or shisha) use was reported by 0.9%. Pipe and chewing tobacco/snuff use were less common, used by 0.5% of respondents or less (Figure 4.1).

After regular increases between 1999 and 2008, use of cigars/cigarillos appears to have declined up until the most recent year. Use of chewing tobacco/snuff and smoking a pipe have both remained fairly low and stable over time (Figure 4.2).
