Vaping-related illnesses in the U.S. are still rising, though at a slightly slower pace.
Health experts say there have been 1479 cases and at least 33 deaths in the mysterious outbreak which appears to have started in March.
The latest jump recorded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (180 cases) was the lowest increase since mid-September.
Last month, Health Canada issued a public warning and asked provincial health experts to report possible cases.
The first confirmed instance was reported in Quebec at the end of September, and New Brunswick has seen two probable cases.
Now British Columbia has one probable case.
