Skin Cancer Prevention Act Coming Into Force

Ontario is protecting young people from skin cancer through a new law that bans the use of tanning beds by youth under the age of 18.

Starting May 1, youth under 18 will no longer be allowed to use tanning beds in Ontario. The new legislation protects young people, who are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, from skin cancer.
