About DineSafe

All establishments in the City of Toronto that serve or prepare food are subject to Toronto Public Health’s DineSafe program — including restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, bars, nightclubs, convenience stores, grocery stores, cafeterias, mobile food vendors and more — and each establishment must display their most recent inspection results prominently and without alteration.

A DineSafe inspection can result in a “pass,” a “conditional pass” or a “closed” notice. A pass is issued if no infractions or only minor infractions are observed, a conditional pass if at least one infraction poses a potential health risk, and a closed notice if at least one infraction presents an immediate health hazard.

Conditional passes and closure notices, which are only issued if at least one major infraction is not corrected at the time of the initial inspection, trigger a follow-up inspection within 48 hours. Failure to correct major infractions upon re-inspection can result in fines, summons to court and other punitive measures.
