2017 update – Canada now seems to allow importing electronic cigarettes with nicotine since we have been receiving them by mail.
Canadians are wondering whether electronic cigarettes are deemed legal in Canada. The last update from the Canadian government on electronic cigarettes dates back to 2009.

Personal electronic cigarette reviews in Canada are popping up daily on blogs and forums everywhere online, with new ex-smokers praising the electronic cigarette. Why is Canada keeping quiet about e-cigarettes? Read the full article on why electronic cigarettes are considered legal in Canada but the nicotine cartridges are not. There’s a mystery involved.
