The World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is a global treaty adopted by some 175 countries representing 88% of the world’s population. The treaty is a legally-binding instrument that mandates Parties to implement a comprehensive set of measures to reduce both the demand for and supply of tobacco products, as well as measures to prevent tobacco companies from interfering with tobacco control policies. The Government of Canada ratified the FCTC in 2004.
