STOP on the Road

STOP on the Road is an exciting initiative which brings smoking cessation treatment directly to Ontario smokers in their communities.


We partner with local health care settings such as Public Health Units and Tobacco Control Area Networks to provide free smoking cessation treatment to smokers via community workshops.


Workshop participants attend a 3-hour workshop where they receive a group psychoeducation presentation​ and a cost-free 5-week kit of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) to support their quit attempt. Since 2007, STOP on the Road has reached over 15,000 patients in 100+ communities across Ontario.





The seventh round of STOP on the Road workshops has started. The schedule is posted below. Please check back periodically as additional dates will be added as new workshops are scheduled.



Workshop participants must be screened for eligibility by Public Health Unit Staff and registered by the Public Health Unit prior to the workshop. Please call the phone number listed beside the workshop (below) to find out if you are eligible and/or for more information.
