we provide free learning resources...

…because you have a right to make informed decisions!

Vaping Advocacy and Education Project Inc. (VAEP) is a not-for-profit corporation

set up and run by a registered nurse.


“Every shift, I care for patients suffering with smoking-related diseases; from acute presentations to chronic disease management.

Through many hours of research, I acquired a strong knowledge base in smoking addiction and tobacco harm reduction.

I formed VAEP to assist the public and healthcare professionals with learning about vaping as a harm reduction strategy.”

Kellie Ann RN

Overcoming vaping misconceptions.

This is why hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars have been invested into this project.

The problem is it's hard to quit smoking

Smoking is the #1 preventable cause of disease and death in North America. Every year, 52% of smokers try to quit, yet less then 5% achieve long term success. Quitting smoking methods approved by governments (nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) and psychotropic medications) have an 84%-96% failure rate.

The science on vaping has clearly indicated vaping is an effective harm reduction strategy for smokers. It more than triples the quit rate of NRT and is a 95% safer alternative to smoking!

Yet, vaping isn't being promoted as an alternative

In many countries, including Canada and the US, vaping is not being supported by much of the public, governments and health agencies.

Why?

We believe people are lacking the information they need to make an informed decision about vaping. The issues are widespread misinformation and a lack of access to accurate information.

The solution

VAEP is a grassroots not-for-profit corporation set up by a registered nurse to help you access accurate information about vaping.

We help you make an informed decision by translating complex scientific evidence into conversational English. We present that information in a variety of formats to make learning easy.

Support vaping education!

To ensure everyone can make an informed decision about vaping, all our materials are accessible for free. We have much more to do to spread the truth.

We are in this together

The cost of smoking effects all of us, whether it’s suffering from disease, the loss of a loved one or the strain on healthcare. We all benefit when smokers chose harm reduction.

Vapers are all too aware of the rampant misinformation circulating about vaping. We hope that our materials help remedy that. Your contributions ensure we can continue delivering effective vaping education tools. If you support vaping education, please consider a one-time donation.

Good for business

Business owners in the vaping industry recognize that educating the public and healthcare professionals about vaping increases the number of vapers, and therefore customers. VAEP is proud to help these small businesses deliver harm reduction!

Quality takes time

Last year, Kellie Ann spent an average of 107 hours a month on VAEP’s development and operations. About 500 hours is needed for research and development to build our online learning center, VAEPology. Every quarter, it will take about 2 or 3 weeks to review the latest vaping science and update VAEPology.

We are a federal not-for-profit corporation, and as such we have many operating costs such as regulatory compliance, bookkeeping, overhead, tech services and supplies. To expand vaping education VAEP will be presenting and lecturing to business groups, healthcare organizations, politicians and the public.

We are confident in our ability to educate both through self-directed learning on our site and direct advocating to individuals and groups. All we need is your support and we will continue to deliver!
