Who are the Vapor Advocates of Ontario?

The Vapour Advocates of Ontario (VAO) is a grassroots movement formed after the threat of harsh and unfair regulations threatened the future of vaping in this province. We are vape shop owners, e-liquid manufacturers and vapers who believe that vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking. But most of all we are former smokers who turned to vaping as a way to improve the quality of our health.

There are approximately 900,000 vapers in Ontario and thousands more employed by the industry either in vape shops, distribution companies or e-liquid manufacturers. As the number of vapers in this province rises, the number of smokers declines which means a healthier population and a fewer number of people who are exposed to the toxic chemicals found in combustible tobacco products.
