Sudbury Community Arena Smoke Free Beginning August 1

1-Aug-2019

Along with the 13 other community arenas, beginning August 1, 2019, the Sudbury Community Arena will be a smoke free property. The change is in line with the updated Smoke-Free Ontario Act, designating public spaces as smoke and vape free. 

The Sudbury Community Arena’s designated outdoor smoking section for concerts, special events and sporting events hosted by the Sudbury Wolves and Sudbury Five will be removed as of August 1, 2019. The current no re-entry policy remains in place. Those who leave the building during an event, will not be permitted back inside. Signs indicating a smoke and vape free property are now on display.

This change supports City Council’s continued commitment to promoting and supporting a Healthy Community for residents to work, play and live. 

The Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy is the provincial government’s comprehensive plan to improve the health of Ontarians by reducing smoking prevalence to 10% by 2023.
