Ontario is banning smoking on bar and restaurant patios, as well as at playgrounds and sports fields, starting this January.

The government announced the new regulations Friday morning as part of changes to the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.

Starting January 1st, 2015, it will be illegal to smoke on bar and restaurant patios, smoke on playgrounds and public sports fields and surfaces, and sell tobacco on university and college campuses.

The government says Ontario’s smoking rate fell from 24.5 per cent in 2000 to 18.1 per cent in 2013, representing 332,361 fewer smokers.
