Inspection results posted on this website describe what the public health inspector observed on the date and time of the inspection. This website is not intended to guarantee the conditions of a food premises at all times and should not be relied upon for that purpose.

Only inspections completed since January 1, 2020 appear on this website. Since inspections are carried out throughout the year, and some premises are inspected only once per year, some food premises may not have inspection results posted on this website until a full year has passed. You can also call your local Northwestern Health Unit office during office hours and ask to speak to a public health inspector who can give you access to the past inspection results over the phone.

This website is designed to provide the same type of information as would be available from a request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Results of all routine inspections, follow-up inspections and complaint inspections are posted. Complaints inspections are verified for authenticity prior to disclosing.
