Cigarettes in Canada, 2019


"Cigarettes in Canada, 2019", is an analytical report that provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Canadian tobacco market. It covers market size and structure along with per capita and overall consumption. Additionally, it focuses on brand data, retail pricing, prospects, and forecasts for sales and consumption until 2028.

The Canadian cigarette market has contracted considerably since its recent peak in 1996, in large part due to the policies and restrictions put in place by national and provincial governments, alongside a very strong and active anti-smoking movement. Recently, rising contraband and illegal manufacturing activities have also contributed to the decline in the duty-paid sector. While there was evidence in 2009 and 2010 that this situation may be improving, recent activity has resulted in a further fall in sales, with rising anti-smoking campaigns adding further pressure to the market. Annual sales have been falling yearly since 2013 and in 2017 were down at 25.3 billion pieces, with a further decline to 24.9 billion pieces in 2018.

  • Contraband supplies, mainly from the US, grew rapidly post increases in taxation imposed on cigarettes in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
  • In 2017, per capita consumption stood at 710 pieces per person, 57.3% down on its level in 1990.
  • The Canadian market was dominated by domestically produced cigarettes until 2005, accounting for 96.9% of sales.
  • Imports of cigarettes from the US and Mexico are exempt from customs duty under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), whilst imports from Chile, Costa Rica, and Israel qualify for preferential rates.
