AFAIK, there are no hiring policies like that in Canada, but then perhaps that has to do with our universal health-care.
There are a small number of companies that have just started doing this here. It was actually on CTV news within the last month. The thing is that, with our employment laws, there is no way they will be allowed to continue to refuse employment to someone because they smoke. The first person who challenges this in court will win and their little experiment will be over.
I am still waiting for someone to challenge Target's hiring policies here in Canada as that company is quickly going to find out they ain't in Kansas any more.
