You need to be certified in Ontario!
Whether you’re a restaurant owner or operating in any other food-related business and organization, you need a food handler certificate and a food safety plan. Both of these documents will be requested by inspectors when they pass by before your business’ opening. Expect them to return for an inspection every four to six months from that point on, however, inspectors can return without notice for a surprise inspection. If you have your food handler’s certificate for Ontario and are enforcing the best food safety practices, you and your business should pass with flying colours.
According to section 32 of Ontario’s Food Premises Regulations, only individuals who have a food handler’s certificate can be employed in food-related businesses. A minimum of one certified employee must be on-site during all hours of the business’ operation.
