Backgrounder on the Canadian Tobacco Industry and Its Market (2007/08 edition)
This backgrounder is the fifth edition of the Non-Smokers’ Rights Association’s (NSRA) backgrounder containing the most current information on the Canadian tobacco industry and its market in a user-friendly format. Indeed, instead of relying mostly on text, this document contains graphs, tables and pictures to make it easier for users to locate the appropriate information. It is not meant to be a scientific review of all the available information on the subject, but rather a practical reference tool. The information comes from reliable sources such as Health Canada and Statistics Canada. Information on the tobacco companies comes mostly from their own annual shareholder reports or websites.
