    Greetings Everyone,

    Are you looking for local in-person support to quit smoking?  Wanting to know if there is any “free” nicotine patches, gum, etc.? 

    We are excited to bring your attention to our new feature:  “Quitmap.ca” that will enable you to do your own community search. 

    Check it out at the top of this website, just click on:  "Find Local Support"

    Right at your fingertips, you can type in key words or city/postal code in the search engine. 

    Feel free to tell us what you think of this new tool! 

    For further programming support, you can talk to us as well by calling:  1-877-513-5333. 


    Happy Searching!

    The Smokers’ Helpline Team

    Some exciting news to share about our new, improved QuitMap:

    On Wednesday we went live with an update that's been in the works for nearly 5 months, with information on over 800 additional services.

    The map is now more interactive; you can click on the flags to bring up a full listing. We've also added a "chat" option in case you need more information.

    Also wanted to point out that you can also find info on QuitMap for topics other than quitting smoking by typing in keywords such as "cancer," or "mental health" or "addiction" for example. We want this to be as useful as possible.

    As Marianne noted above, click on "Find Local Support" at the top of this page, and you're on your way!

    Best Regards,
    Efram
