National Non-Smoking Week has been observed during the third week in January for more than thirty years.
From its inception in 1977 until 1998, NNSW activities were coordinated by the Canadian Council on Smoking and Health (now known as the Canadian Council for Tobacco Control) and organized around a central theme. The themes were chosen to focus media and public attention on particular concerns related to tobacco use.
