New tenants in buildings owned by the Municipality of Chatham-Kent will be required to sign a lease acknowledging a Smoke-Free Building policy and to abide by it while living at that building.
Current CKHS tenants will have the option of changing their lease to a smoke-free designation. We will have designated outdoor smoking areas on the properties after July 1, 2018. If a household is currently living at one of the affected buildings and transfers to another affected building, they will be required to sign a new lease with the smoke-free unit designation at the new building.
The Smoke-Free Building policy will allow applicants housed before July 1, 2018 to smoke in their units if they choose. Applicants housed on or after July 1, 2018 will only be permitted to smoke in designated outdoor smoking areas on the building property. All common areas in buildings are currently, and will remain, smoke free.
