The study reveal that approximately 20% of youth between the ages of 15 and 19 experiments with vaping, the same number who try cigarettes.
David Hammond, lead author on the report and a professor in the School of Public Health and Health Systems at Waterloo, said that e-cigarettes have become increasingly popular among Canadians and one in five youth will try vaping before graduating high school.
Currently, several provinces are developing policies for the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes both with and without nicotine.
In total, more than 2.5 million Canadians have tried e-cigarettes, with smokers and young people making up the largest demographic of ongoing users.
The report is published today in Tobacco Use in Canada: Patterns and Trends.
