LTPB is a health resource for campus students to access FREE Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). Through collaboration with OCAD U’s Health & Wellness Centre, we provide students with cessation counseling and NRT to help them stay or become smoke-free. We run social events to promote and facilitate activities in which students do not feel compelled to smoke. We are also working to develop a smoking policy on campus.
