[...] Appropriate is defined as an intervention which is effective, satisfactory to the user, and enables existing resources to be used in a manner that maximally reduces the burden of tobacco use across the population of users. [...] Specifically, we will require a combination of policies to motivate tobacco users to quit, and quitters to remain abstinent; communications to motivate tobacco users to quit and use appropriate services; programs and products to improve tobacco users’ access to effective and appropriate behavioral, social, and pharmacological support; methods to improve coordination across programs and products; i [...] Funding for these special initiatives should come from a variety of sources including Health Canada, the Canadian Tobacco Control Research Initiative, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Canadian Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute of Canada, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the Canadian Lung Association, and provincial and territorial governments.
