Unsmoke your world through quitting altogether. If you don't, change from cigarettes to better alternatives to continued smoking.

Community Initiatives

At Unsmoke, a big part of our goal revolves around community engagement and tangible action.  We’re determined to play an active role in communities across Canada to take steps towards our goals. Explore some of our partnerships and initiatives throughout this page.


Our Impact

Every year, we grant thousands of dollars to organizations across Canada to organize litter cleanup events.  In 2022, the Unsmoke Canada Cleanups made a positive impact across Canadian communities including:

The key difference between cigarettes and smoke-free products is that cigarettes burn tobacco and smoke-free products don’t. 

This is important because the smoke from a burning cigarette contains more than 6,000 chemicals, around 100 of which have been classified as harmful or potentially harmful by public health authorities. 

If you eliminate the burning as is the case with smoke-free products, you can significantly reduce the level of harmful chemicals.
