The Quit Smoking Program (QSP) is a nurse-led clinic that provides you with one-on-one support during your attempt to quit. The program provides a non-judgmental and supportive environment where a “quit plan” is tailored to meet your individual needs. Anyone may self-refer to the program, or be referred by a healthcare provider. The cost is covered by OHIP.
What to expect
At your first visit you will meet with the nurse to establish your personal treatment plan, which may include medication. Carbon monoxide readings will be taken so you can see your progress.
Follow-up visits are scheduled about once a month for six months.
To enable accessibility, appointments are offered over the phone or videoconference.
To register for the Quit Smoking Program, you can either:
- Call us at 613-696-7069

You do not need a physician referral. You will be asked to complete and return a baseline questionnaire prior to us booking your first visit.
Please bring the following to your first appointment:
- Your health card
- A list of your current medications
- Your physician(s) name(s) and contact numbers
- Your pharmacist’s name and contact numbers
