December 5, 2018

The Université du Québec à Montréal has announced that it will go entirely smoke-free. According to UQAM, the unanimous decision was informed by a broader university policy that aims to promote health and wellness on campus. UQAM states that it will also implement an awareness campaign around the risks of cannabis use, and that it will prohibit employees from any work-related activities if they are impaired by cannabis or any other substance. The smoking ban applies to all facilities, grounds, and buildings owned, rented, or occupied by the university, as well as university residences, adds UQAM. UQAM (QC)
