Ontario Campaign Against Tobacco

From their website: "The Ontario Campaign for Action on Tobacco was founded in 1992 to support passage of the Ontario Tobacco Control Act in order to reduce tobacco sales to minors, eliminate tobacco sales from drug stores and vending machines, and make more public places smoke-free. Since the Act's passage in November 1994, which accomplished many of these goals, the OCAT has worked toward the passage of smoke-free workplace and public place by-laws throughout Ontario, does research on the costs of smoking and the impacts of second-hand smoke, and has assisted national health agencies in developing and implementing national tobacco control policies."
