The provincial government says it wants to protect young people from the effects of tanning beds.
Anyone under 18 would be banned from using the beds under legislation being introduced by Health Minister Deb Matthews.
Matthews says the legislation would also require operators to request I-D from anyone who appears to be under 25.
It would also be illegal to aim tanning bed ads at those under 18.
The N-D-P has long called for such a ban to protect young people from skin cancer.
