According to Canadian media Acadienouvelle, the Canadian province of New Brunswick announced that it will levy consumption tax on vape products starting from January 1, 2025. This policy is the latest move after the federal government.

New Brunswick Finance Minister Ernie Steeves explained at the unveiling of the 2024-2025 fiscal year budget, “Youth vaping is a major social problem. Nearly 13% of secondary school students Daily use of vapes. Research results show that teenagers are price sensitive, and an increase in price will reduce their willingness to use vapes.”

The new consumption tax standard is that a tax of CAD$1 will be levied on vape products with a capacity or weight not exceeding 2 ml or 2 grams (depending on whether they are e-liquid or solid products); products with a capacity and weight exceeding 2 ml or 2 g, but not exceeding 10 ml or 10 g, an additional CAD$1 excise tax will be charged for each additional 2 ml or 2 g. After the total volume of the product exceeds 10 ml or 10 grams, you only need to pay a consumption tax of CAD 1 for each additional 10 ml or 10 grams.

Therefore, by 2025, if a New Brunswick consumer wants to purchase a 6 ml bottle of vape product, they will need to pay an additional $6 CAD over the original price, of which CAD 3 is the federal excise tax and the other CAD 3 is the Save consumption tax. If he wants to buy 15 grams of product, he will need to pay a sales tax of 12 Canadian dollars, calculated as 6 Canadian dollars per level of government. Preliminary estimates are that this measure will bring in $1 million in benefits by the end of the fiscal year.

The Canadian Cancer Society welcomes this. Rob Cunningham, principal policy analyst at the Canadian Cancer Society (SCC), said they are pleased to see New Brunswick announce a tax on vaping products, in line with the rest of the country.

“This is a consistent operation method across provinces and localities.” He warned that vapes in the province are too easy to obtain and may lure a large number of teenagers to become dependent on nicotine products.
