Our public health inspectors, also known as environmental health officers, conduct more than 16,000 inspections of restaurants, food facilities and stores annually. We also educate food handlers and consumers about safe food handling practices.
Facility inspections are conducted regularly and when complaints are received for food premises, pools, child care, personal services (such as hair and nail salons), and residential care facilities in Vancouver, Richmond, North Shore, Sunshine Coast, and Sea to Sky. Each visit generates an inspection report that is provided to the operator to either confirm they are compliant with regulations, or lists deficiencies that need to be addressed.
