Inspection Connection


February 2019 - Announcement

We are currently experiencing technical issues with the mapping feature of our Inspection Connection website. The Table search functionality is not affected at this time.

Inspection Connection is a health unit service that provides public access to inspection reports. At this time only food safety inspection reports will be available as part of the Inspection Connection service. There are two main components of Inspection Connection:

1. Access to online inspection results at
Recent inspection results conducted by a Public Health Inspector are available online for most food establishments in Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka.

We will make inspection reports available for the following types of food premises:

  • General food service establishments (restaurants, bars, cafeterias, delis, butcher shops, grocery stores, banquet halls, catering kitchens, etc.)
  • Institutional food service establishments (hospitals, licensed child care centres, long-term care homes, etc.) 
  • Mobile food service premises (hot dog carts, catering vehicles, french fry trucks, etc.)

2. Posting of onsite signage:
As Public Health Inspectors complete food safety inspections, a green certificate of inspection sign will be offered to operators to post in their food establishment. Each sign will have a date of inspection listed to signify when the food establishment was last inspected.

A green certificate of inspection sign displayed in the window means that, on the date of the inspection, the minimum standards of the regulation were met.

In addition to the green sign, if if there is at least one staff person working at the time of inspection who is certified in food safety, a blue sticker will be attached to the green sign.

A red CLOSED sign is given to an operator of a food establishment when the Public Health Inspector has observed that an immediate health hazard exists. The food establishment is required to post this sign at the entrance. A Public Health Inspector will remove the CLOSED sign once any health hazards have been removed or corrected.
