About DineSafe

All establishments that prepare and serve food in the City of Toronto are subject to the Toronto Public Health’s DineSafe program. Such businesses must display their most recent inspection results prominently and without alteration.

Inspections can result in a “pass,” “conditional pass” or “closed” notice. Conditional passes are issued when at least one infraction poses a potential health risk, while the order to close is issued when an immediate health hazard is present.

Both conditional passes and closure notices 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.
