Peel Health Inspections

We regularly inspect businesses for compliance with public health related legislation.
Businesses inspected include:

  • food premises (e.g., restaurants, catering services, banquet halls and food stores),
  • personal service settings (e.g., businesses that provide services such as hairdressing, manicures, tattooing and ear or body piercing),
  • day nurseries,
  • public pools and spas, and
  • tobacco and electronic cigarette retailers.

We also investigate suspected infection prevention and control (IPAC) lapses, and complaints about smoking in prohibited areas.

Legal Actions and Convictions

Our public health inspectors use education to help businesses comply with legislation. When needed, we also use enforcement.

When an offence occurs under the legislation, the owner or operator may be charged. If convicted by a court of law, the business and conviction details will be listed in the following reports.

Disclaimer: Tobacco Sales Offences and Automatic Prohibition (AP)

Prospective buyers of tobacco retail dealer premises are strongly encouraged to contact the local public health unit to confirm premises conviction history. A premises with two or more tobacco sales convictions against any owner (past or present) at that address within a five year period is subject to a Notice of Prohibition Against the Sale, Storage and Delivery of Tobacco Products (known as an automatic prohibition or "AP").

Section 22 of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 (SFOA) states that upon becoming aware that there are two or more convictions against any owner for tobacco sales offences committed at the same place within a five year period, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) shall notify the owner(s) or occupant of the place that the sale, storage and delivery of tobacco products is prohibited at the place.

The MOHLTC accepts requests from public health units for automatic prohibitions where owner(s) of the business was/were convicted of tobacco sales offences on two occasions. The SFOA convictions report published on public health units' websites lists all owner related tobacco sales convictions that are eligible for an automatic prohibition. Please note that automatic prohibitions do not apply to vapour products sales convictions.
