Food Safety

We inspect food establishments and educate people about food safety

Food Safety

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.

About inspections

Inspections are conducted on a regular basis and when complaints are received. Each visit generates an inspection report that is provided to the operator to either confirm that they are compliant with regulations, or to inform them that they are required to address deficiencies.
