Aboriginal Tobacco Program

Aboriginal Tobacco Program (ATP) works with stakeholders across Ontario to prevent and reduce commercial tobacco use. ATP is part of the Prevention and Screening Department of Cancer Care Ontario and is funded by the Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy.

Goal: Engage Aboriginal communities in the creation of health promotion strategies to decrease and prevent the misuse of tobacco

How ATP can support your community

  • Provide materials such as posters, wristbands and pamphlets to raise awareness in your community
  • Connect front-line health staff to training programs on commercial tobacco prevention, cessation and protection
  • Provide evidence-based information to community leaders about how to build a Tobacco-Wise community


Community capacity building projects

Aboriginal communities receive funding and support to implement short-term tobacco cessation programming targeted at youth and/or pregnant and post partum women.

Youth Tobacco Working Group

The youth tobacco working group focuses on developing and implementing a Tobacco-Wise Sports and Recreation campaign for the Little Native Hockey League (Little NHL) and Aboriginal communities.

Collaboration for resource development

We collaborate with other organizations to use current resources and inform the development of future resources to better meet Aboriginal needs. We also host a website promoting Tobacco-Wise communities and lifestyles.
