The majority of people who smoke want to quit and are making quit attempts.

In order to support tobacco users in quit attempts, we need an integrated and comprehensive approach to tobacco cessation in our community.  By working together we can increase the reach of cessation interventions within Grey-Bruce and work towards removing the gaps that exist in our local cessation services and programs.

Together – WE can make a difference!
