    This summer I'll spend one month in Toronto, visiting my dad. My last time there was in 1999 and I wasn't vaping back then, obviously.

    How are things in Ontario for vapers? Is vaping ok? Are there particular things I should be aware of? Thanks for your help. :)

    If there are good vaping stores downtown and prices are not outrageous for e-liquids, I might avoid carrying with me too many provisions.

    You'll be happy to know the Canadian government fully embraces vaping as a harm reduction strategy so it's totally legal here. That said, anywhere you can't smoke you'll also not be able to vape.

    I know there's lots of vape stores in downtown Toronto but I can't recommend any, sorry.

    Have a great trip!

    canadian govt does not support vaping as a harm reduction therapy, health canada has issued no such decree, actually the opposite and treating it as a tobacco product but no specific laws on vaping bans.
    but plenty of vape shops, where u cant smoke applies to vaping, depending on store prices can vary and be pricey. google will help in finding vape shops near your locale. fyi convenience store/gas stations all seem to adverise and sell vape pens

    Toronto and the surrounding GTA has quite a diversity of vape shops.

    Dashvapes, which has a number of shops in the GTA. Prices are average and equipment mostly caters toward the pod trend but still has a decent selection of devices and rebuildables. Has a great juice bar which if you look online most juices are coded so you can find, and sample within the store. Really smart setup

    Ecigarette.ca in midtown Toronto is the mastermind behind the BB Vapes brand (BRVND). Excellent hardware selection from beginner kits to high(ish) end devices. Also sells refurbish/used gear

    Vapes By Enushi is a high end vape shop located just North of Toronto in Markham. If you suffer from Shinyitis and have deep pockets, I would not pass up on the opportunity to pay them a visit.

    Many, many other shops within Toronto – Google can assist in finding them.

    Just to add, not all shops offer juice sampling. Those that do offer, are not allowed by law for you to sample with your own device. Also, the law states that no more than 2 people can sample at the same time.

    Supposedly, we can now legally import nic from anywhere in the world provided it does not exceed 66mg/g and is considered a reasonable personal amount for a 3 month supply. I don't know anyone who's tried to import any since Bill S-5 became law. It's impossible to find out what CBSA would consider a 3 month supply as well. I've followed every link and checked everywhere but can't find that magic number. :rolleyes:

    Seem to recall a conversation from a Canadian individual having his juice order from the US confiscated by customs. Don’t recall the details or how much he ordered.

    Yeah, that's the fly in the ointment. A personal 3 month supply varies widely among individuals. They need to publicly post that amount so that everyone can fall into line. The way it is now you're taking a risk when you order because nobody knows what the magic number is that is considered "reasonable".
