Food Premise Convictions & Orders in Hamilton

Public health inspectors routinely visit over 3,200 food premises in Hamilton.  When they visit food premises including restaurants, they check for safe food handling outlined in the Ontario Food Premise Regulation. Food premises that are not following the law at the time of the inspection are either given:

  • a specific time period to fix what they are doing wrong
  • an Order under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, such as closing a restaurant, if there is an immediate risk to patrons

Food premises are fined if they are convicted in court of not following the Ontario Food Premises Regulation or not following an Order. Fines range from $50 for minor infractions to $25,000 per day for a corporation who does not follow an Order.
