Making your apartment building smokefree: a how-to guide

Are you wondering how to make your apartment building smokefree?

The Non-Smokers’ Rights Association in Canada has developed a detailed guide to developing and implementing a smokefree policy in an apartment building. Although it is geared toward apartment managers, condo owners and residents who want to enact change in their buildings will find it useful as well.

Steps range from conducting a survey of tenants and holding meetings with all involved to giving residents several months notice and mapping out a dispute resolution policy in advance.

The guide contains just one reference to to Canadian law; apart from that, every other piece of advice would work in the U.S.
