Food Safety - Common Questions
Who do I contact to complain about a restaurant (or other food service) that is filthy or operating below health standards?
Public health inspectors employed by the health regions are responsible for investigating public health related complaints associated with restaurants, concessions and other public eating establishments. Please call the public health inspector in your area.
I believe my recent illness was due to food consumed at a particular facility or event. Who should I report this to?
Reports of food borne illness should be reported to public health staff employed by health regions. Please contact the public health inspector in your area.
I heard that the food safety regulations in Saskatchewan require food handlers to successfully complete an approved safe food handling course. Is this true and, if so, how can I get certified?
The regulations require that at least one person who is certified in safe food handling is working in a public eating establishment at all times when food is being prepared or served. Public health inspectors employed by health regions and other agencies do conduct courses. Please contact the public health inspector in your area for more information.
