About Us

Better to Breathe was founded in 2011 by the Young Adult Leadership Team (YLT) as a national initiative to lower tobacco consumption rates in Canada’s youth. Initially a blog, this website seeks to provide credible resources and interesting campaigns regarding tobacco awareness and cessation. With the support of The Student’s Commission of Canada, in addition to Health Canada, the YLT is committed to engaging young people in meaningful discussions surrounding this issue.
