Information About Posted Restaurant Inspections
Calgary and Area
The restaurant inspection database, for the Calgary and area zone of Alberta Health Services,
was created under direction of the Alberta Minister of Health. The database allows the general
public to search a restaurant's most recent health inspection reports in order to make better
informed decisions about where to eat. Restaurant health inspections, of the type listed
below and conducted after January 1, 2008 will be included in the database.
The information posted on the Alberta Health Services website regarding inspections of
food facilities in the Calgary and area zone is valid only for the time of inspection.
Although every effort is made to have new inspections posted within 72 hours,
unforeseen circumstances may delay the posting process.
If a facility exceeds the maximum acceptable level of risk for continued operation
or if the operator fails to correct or eliminate the hazards identified, the Public Health
Inspector as an Executive Officer has the discretion to order the facility closed.
Types of Inspections:
Initial / Approval - an inspection of a facility performed prior to its opening
to determine if the facility is in a condition capable of being operated in
compliance with applicable legislation.

Follow-up / Re-inspection - an inspection of a facility performed to determine
