The District of Port Hardy Council is considering implementing a Smoking Regulation Bylaw No. 1068-2017. The Bylaw received first reading on July 11, 2017.


In the bylaw the following prohibitions will apply:

any part of a park within the District of Port Hardy;

  1. a bus stop;
  2. a customer service area;
