Other Tobacco Use by Province

Prevalence of use of cigars/cigarillos varied significantly by province,(43) from 1.4% in Newfoundland to 4.6% in Alberta in 2013 (Table 4.1). Despite decreases in recent years, point estimates of use for 2013 were higher than for 2012 in most provinces. After 1999, use of cigars/cigarillos increased for a number of years before the trend reversed around 2008; rates of use have returned to near 1999 levels in about half of provinces.

The prevalence estimates for chewing tobacco/pinch/snuff, pipe, and waterpipe use in the past 30 days were not reportable by province.
