Over the past decade, we have seen an increase in vaping product use especially among youth and young adults. Vaping has become a youth issue and with no response from the government we knew that the youth voice needed to be heard! Youth4Change was created in 2018 with a group of youth in Saskatoon, and expanded to include two other groups in Saskatchewan working together to educate and advocate for policy change! Youth4Change is working to make sure that youth understand the health risks of vaping and are advocating to the government to regulate vaping more closely. We are working hard to make changes to protect all Saskatchewan Kids.
Youth4Change groups from Saskatoon, Piapot Cree Nation and the University of Regina successfully advocated for the passing of Bill 182, The Tobacco and Vaping Control Act in Saskatchewan which came into effect on February 1st 2020.
