Food Safety


Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) inspect food establishments in order to ensure compliance with the Food Establishment Safety Regulations and the Public Health Act.  EHOs investigate foodborne illness complaints and provide valuable information about food safety to the public. Also, EHOs teach the NWT Food Safety Course to food handlers. The goal of the Food Safety Program is to reduce the numbers of foodborne illnesses.


Food Establishments

A Food Establishment Permit may be required for any place where food is handled and intended for public consumption. Inspection reports of food establishments can be viewed here.
