According to a 2009 Youth Smoking survey by Statistics Canada, roughly half of Grade 10-12 students nationwide (both male and female) have tried a cigarette at least once in their lives. Of those, 15 per cent of males and 11 per cent of females considered themselves “smokers”, smoking an average of nine cigarettes per day.
