ChooseWise is a Northwestern Health Unit program designed to share the results of health inspections with the public. Under the Ontario Public Health Standards (OPHS) Guidelines, boards of health must publicly disclose the results of public health inspections. Disclosure helps reduce the number of uninspected premises, increases public awareness of inspections, and empowers consumers to make informed choices about their safety.
There are two ways we disclose this information: online and on-site.
Our ChooseWise website is where the Northwestern Health Unit posts inspection results for local food premises, personal service settings, recreational water facilities, and recreational camps. All local premises will be listed on our website.
You can find a detailed report of each inspection, outlining what the critical and/or non-critical infractions were and whether they were corrected during the inspection. You will also be able to see what type of enforcement actions have been taken to address infractions as well as the status of the legal action.
