Non-Smokers' Rights Association, Québec

The Non-Smokers' Rights Association is a non-profit health organization that has been at the forefront of tobacco-control efforts in Canada and around the world for the past quarter-century. The NSRA was founded in Toronto in 1974 by Rosalee Berlin, a registered nurse whose allergies made her particularly sensitive to second-hand smoke. It began as a small volunteer group dedicated to achieving clean air for non-smokers. The association has broadened its scope to all public health aspects of the tobacco epidemic, resolutely putting the blame for this problem on the tobacco industry, rather than on individual smokers.
