The Public Health Act grants Public Health Inspectors power to inspect public places and when necessary order that any dangerous conditions be repaired, removed, destroyed, or declared unfit. The Environmental Public Health Program may prosecute owners and operators of public places that continue to use unsafe practices that may endanger people in court. Restaurant inspections, orders and court cases are available on-line.
The Public Health Appeal Board hears appeals from individuals who have been directly affected by an order issued by a public health inspector under the Public Health Act. Please visit the Public Health Appeal Board website to learn more.
