The Canadian cigarette market has been steadily declining since its peak in 1996 due to the greater awareness of the dangers of smoking, changing social attitudes and rising prices. However, the non-duty paid cigarette market is also very high, accounting for almost a fifth of the market, and distorts the consumption rates as a result. Additionally, all major cigarette companies have closed their domestic productions and have instead imported cigarettes from either the US or Mexico.
Non-duty paid cigarettes account for 20.6% of the market with most coming from First Nations Indian Reservations or the US
Imperial Tobacco Canada (ITC) is the dominate company in the market with 51.2% of legal volume sales in 2012
Though smoking rates have decline in recent decades it still stands at 16.1% of all adults and is expected to remain steady in the coming years
