About the STOP program

The Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) is an Ontario-wide program designed to help people reduce or quit smoking. A key element of the program is to increase access to Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). As apart of the program, you may receive 6 months of nicotine patches, gums, inhalers or lozenges.
