Provincial Vaping Excise Tax: What You Need to Know

 The vaping scene in Canada is experiencing notable transformations, with the rollout of a provincial excise tax on vaping products. As of October 1st, 2022, the federal government initiated an excise tax, prompting provinces like Ontario, Quebec, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut to follow suit. At VIP Vape, we recognize the importance of staying informed and prepared for these regulatory shifts. Let's delve into how the new provincial excise tax might affect vapers and how VIP Vape is here to assist our customers through these transitions.

Provincial Excise Duty Rollout: Commencing July 1st, 2024, several provinces across Canada will commence the collection of excise duty on all vapeable vaping products, including E-Liquid, Disposables, and Pre-Filled Pods. This action aligns with federal regulations and doubles the excise duty in participating provinces.

Excise Duty Rates: The provincial excise duty rates mirror those established by the federal government:

  • $1 for every 2mL on the initial 10mL of e-liquid (or pod, or disposable)
  • $1 for every 10mL above the initial 10mL


Impact on Consumers: The implementation of provincial excise taxes will result in escalated costs for vapers. For instance, a 30mL bottle will accrue an additional $14.00 in excise taxes (Federally and Provincially combined). This underscores the importance of grasping the new cost structure and its implications for consumers.

Legal Implications of Duty Stamps: It's crucial to note that products imported into Canada from outside the country must bear duty stamps to be deemed legal for sale or importation. Non-compliance may lead to confiscation by Customs, as evidenced by the federal stamp regime.

Affordability of Vaping: Despite the new tax, vaping remains a more economical choice compared to traditional smoking. VIP Vape acknowledges the financial benefits of vaping and remains committed to delivering quality products at competitive prices.

Broad Impact on Vaping Products: The excise tax affects a broad spectrum of vaping products, encompassing disposable vapes, pre-filled pod systems, and DIY products. VIP Vape offers a diverse array of products to cater to our customers' needs while navigating these regulatory changes.
