COVID-19- Operation of a Non-Essential Business
In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Non-Essential businesses have been ordered to close their doors for the time being. The Province of Ontario is responsible for deeming a business non-essential.
Businesses that have been deemed essential are permitted to be open during this time. To view a full comprehensive list of Essential Workplaces, please click here.
Due to these forced closures, if a non-essential business is open, Enforcement Officers will conduct the initial inspection and will issue a Notice of Violation or verbal warning as required for non-essential businesses.
If you would like to report a non-essential business that is still open, please submit a service request, call 311 or 905-874-2000.
