Our Vision

We want to stop selling cigarettes by 2035.

Canadians have been consuming tobacco the same way for a long time – mostly by burning cigarettes. It’s time for a change. It’s time to stop smoking.

Whether you are a smoker or someone who loves one, you should know there are better choices to smoking.

The best choice is to never start smoking. And if you do smoke, your best choice is to quit entirely.

But if you or someone you love won’t quit; you should change. Through innovative technology, RBH wants to help make Canada smoke-free, and stop selling cigarettes by 2035.

These alternatives are not meant for non-smokers, they are not risk-free, and they contain nicotine, which is addictive.

Change is possible. But we can’t do it alone. We need governments, consumers, and society all to play a role.

Our Company

Leading Canada’s transition away from cigarettes.

At RBH, we think big, start small, and move fast by celebrating diversity of opinions to ensure the best ideas win.

Our staff of almost 800 at eight different locations across the country fuel the innovation that has made RBH one of Canada’s leading tobacco companies.

With the support of our parent company, Philip Morris International, we’re paving the way for a smoke-free future for all Canadians.
