Inspections ensure sanitation, disinfection and infection control procedures are followed.

Personal service facilities are inspected to ensure compliance with the Regulated Activities Regulation under the Public Health Act and to determine if industry standard practices are being followed with respect to general sanitation, disinfection and infection control procedures for the specific type of service being offered.

We do not inspect establishments that are registered with a professional association. For example:

  • Doctor offices
  • Physiotherapists
  • Registered massage therapists
  • Acupuncturists registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Particular attention is paid to ensuring that disinfection and infection control requirements are being met in those facilities providing higher risk services, such as tattooing, piercing or other procedures where the skin is broken or penetrated. Environmental health officers also review safety procedures related to radiating devices such as those found in laser therapy and tanning facilities.

In general, hazard ratings are assigned based on an assessment of hazards or conditions noted at the time of inspection.

Violation tickets

Both environmental health officers and tobacco enforcement officers are employed by Fraser Health to complete routine, follow-up and complaint inspections. This helps to ensure that facilities are in compliance with the applicable public health legislation. Officers have a variety of tools at their discretion which include but are not limited to education, violation tickets, orders and court action. Note that violation tickets issued to private individuals may not be displayed.

Please note that the offenses listed here are current as of the date at the bottom of each page. Violation tickets will be updated at the beginning of each month.

Also note that violation tickets can be disputed in court. In the case where the operator has been successful in disputing the violation ticket, the ticket will be removed on the next update.

In the document below violation tickets are grouped, first of all by type of facility such as, drinking water systems, food facilities, onsite sewage disposal, personal service establishments, recreational water (pools, beaches, etc.)  and tobacco sales. Within each of these Facility types, communities will be listed in alphabetical order.
