Public Health Inspectors

Help reduce and prevent food-borne illness by:

  • Inspecting food premises for unsafe food handling practices 
  • Investigating cases of food-borne illness 
  • Training food handlers
  • Promoting public awareness of food-borne illnesses and safe food handling practices
  • Enforcing Ontario Food Premise Regulation 493/17 under the Health Protection and Promotion Act
  • Responding to reports of food safety-related issues arising from emergencies (extreme weather, power outages, etc.)​

The Health Unit's Inspection Reports provides quick and easy access to the results of food safety inspections. Food Inspection results must be posted on our website, in compliance with Ontario Food Premises Regulation 493/17 s.6.
