A message from the NL Alliance for the Control of Tobacco (ACT)

Posted November 2, 2017

Smoking Results in almost 1000 deaths per year, costing our Healthcare System over $188 Million per year in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Smoking is responsible for our devastating healthcare burden in Newfoundland and Labrador, according to a Conference Board of Canada study published in October 2017.

This study says that smoking causes 985 deaths in our province annually and 18.4% of our deaths nationwide. Annual combined direct and indirect costs to Newfoundlanders and Labradorians is nearly $190 million. The study was based on data for 2012.

Conference Board of Canada study found that across the country, health burden from tobacco was significantly higher in 2012 than a decade earlier. There were an estimated 45,464 smoking related deaths in 2012, up from 37,209 smoking related deaths in 2002.

Direct nationwide healthcare costs were $6.5 billion in 2012, up from $4.4 billion in 2002.

The study includes a provincial breakdown of smoking-related deaths and health care costs.

Although smoking rates have declined in Newfoundland and Labrador over the past ten years, 1 in 5 people in our province continues to smoke.

Kevin Coady, "Newfoundland and Labrador Alliance for the Control of Tobacco (ACT)" Executive Director, states that

“It is imperative that the message of “Life is better smoke-free” reaches our youth and young people so that they never make the decision to start smoking. In addition, more must be done to support smokers who want to quit smoking and to protect everyone in the population from the hazards of second-hand smoke.”

ACT believes that we cannot continue to watch this increase in deaths and health costs due to tobacco use.

It is time for everyone to play a role in promoting smoke-free living.
