Cigarette Consumption by Province

In 2013, while average daily cigarette consumption estimates varied somewhat by province, ranging from 12.9 cigarettes per day (CPD) in British Columbia to 15.6 in Ontario, overall variation by province was not significant(32) (Figure 2.2).

Between 1999 and 2013, average daily cigarette consumption appears to have decreased in all provinces, although with a plateau in the most recent years for many provinces (Table 2.2). The magnitude of this decline varied somewhat by province, with the greatest decreases observed in Nova Scotia (from 18.1 to 14.0 CPD), Newfoundland (from 17.2 to 13.1 CPD) and New Brunswick (from 18.3 to 14.3 CPD).
