An excise duty on vaping products, as announced in Budget 2022, is being implemented on October 1, 2022 through the introduction of a new excise duty framework. The excise duty applies to vaping substances that are manufactured in Canada or imported and that are intended for use in a vaping device in Canada.
What is it and how it will affect you?
The Canadian government is introducing an excise duty that will require all e-liquid or pre-filled pod / cartridge sold in Canada to be excise-tax stamped (similar to the excise stickers found on tobacco and cannabis products).
How to calculate:
The excise duty rates on vaping products are outlined in Schedule 8 of the Excise Act, 2001 and are as follows:
For vaping liquids:
- $1 per 2 millilitres (mL), or fraction thereof, for the first 10 mL of vaping substance in the vaping device or immediate container
- $1 per 10 mL, or fraction thereof, for amounts over the first 10 mL
How it translates to ePuffer products?
|Product||Excise Tax Rate
From Oct 1, 2022
|30mL Eliquid Bottle||+ $7.00|
|50mL Eliquid Bottle||+ $9.00|
|XPOD 3-Pack||+ $3.00|
|ECO Disposable E-Cigarette||+ $1.00|
|ROBUSTO Disposable E-Cigar||+ $1.00|
|SNAPS Cartridges 5-Pack||+ $5.00|
What products are affected?
This only affects e-liquid or anything that contains e-liquid for example: disposable e-cigarettes, e-cigars, pre-filled pod and cartridge systems).
This does not affect any Vape Hardware ( non-filled, refillable devices sold without eliquid).
Is it still cheaper to Vape?
100% Yes! Even after paying the Excise Tax you will still save compare to smoking.
For example, one pack a day smoker will spend ~$119.00 on cigarettes a week, vs. $41.86 on prefilled XPOD, or $22.95 for a bottle of 30ml eliquid in the same one-week period.
