Tobacco Use in Canada
Patterns and Trends - 2015 Edition

use OF OTHER TOBACCO PRODUCTS

By Sex | By Age | By Province

Cigarillos (little cigars) were the most popular tobacco product other than cigarettes, with 2.6% of Canadians reporting use in the past 30 days (Figure 4.1). Cigar use was reported by 1.4% of respondents. Waterpipe (also called hookah or shisha) use was reported by 0.8%. Pipe and chewing tobacco/snuff were less common, used by 0.7% and 0.6% of respondents, respectively (Figure 4.1).

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