Smoke Free Banff Bylaw
As of February 1, smoking and vaping of tobacco and nicotine products are not allowed in many places in the Town of Banff. This new bylaw prohibits smoking or vaping in municipal parks, trails and pathways, outdoor markets and events, bus stops, sidewalks, pedestrian zones, and in proximity to children not in one’s care. Smoking cannabis publicly is banned town-wide. To learn more about this change visit banff.ca/SmokeFree.
