Environmental Public Health - Safe Food

Works to prevent food poisoning (also called food borne illness) in Alberta by investigating food-related complaints and providing food safety information and education to facility staff and the public.

Alberta Health Services issues food handling permits to facilities that offer food to the public, like restaurants, food trucks, grocery stores, daycares, and nursing homes. Public health inspectors follow up on complaints and inspect food facilities to assess food safety.

Public health inspectors offer food safety information, education, and provide guidance on safe food handling practices for special events, markets, bake sales, and other functions.

Alberta's Food Regulation and Food Retail and Foodservices Code describe the minimum health requirements for food facilities.

Submit an online complaint or request, or contact us at 1-833-476-4743. For more information visit the Environmental Public Health website.
