Leading, Promoting and Advocating for Environmental Public Health Professionals in Ontario


Mandatory Food Handler Training


The Council of Ontario Medical Officers of Health, the Association of Supervisors of

Public Health Inspectors of Ontario and the Ontario Branch of the Canadian

Institute of Public Health Inspectors are calling on the Province of Ontario to amend

the Health Protection and Promotion Act and/or the Food Premises Regulation to

require mandatory certification of food handlers in a manner that is consistent with

the Ontario Public Health Standards Food Safety Protocol.


A joint letter was sent to Dr. Arlene King, CMOH (Ontario) with the details of this request.


Mandatory Food Handler Training Amendment Request   



Dr. King's response was received November 3, 2009, thanking us for our input.
