Federal budget unveils major tax hike for smokers that will see jump in cost of cigarettes, tobacco and cigars

OTTAWA — The federal government is substantially hiking taxes on cigarettes, chewing tobacco and cigars — a move that is sure to leave Canadian smokers fuming and could lead to an increase in contraband sales.

In a surprise announcement in Tuesday’s budget, the Conservative government unveiled a major tax hike for smokers that will force them to dig deeper to light up.

Even so-called “duty free” tobacco won’t be spared from the tax hike and will now face the same federal excise taxes as smokes and manufactured tobacco for sale in the domestic market.
