Community-Based Special Events Information and Application Package

This page was reviewed or revised on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 3:39 PM

Lambton Public Health hopes that your community special event is a great success. A food borne illness, however, can turn any special event into a nightmare. To assist you in organizing a safe event, this information package has been developed to provide you with the food safety knowledge you need in order to ensure the food you are serving is safe and the event is in compliance with the Smoke-Free Ontario Act.

This package contains:

  1. Special events information
  2. Requirements for reducing food borne illness for event organizers and food and/or beverage vendors
  3. Responsibilities for event organizers and food and/or beverage vendors under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act

Please note under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, R.S.O. 1990, CHAPTER H.7 all event organizers are required to notify Lambton Public Health of special events open to the public where food is being served. All application forms included in this Package must be completed and returned to Lambton Public Health at least 2 weeks prior to the date of your event. A Public Health Inspector will contact you to review your application.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Lambton Public Health:

Public Health Inspector at 519-383-8331
Tobacco Hotline at 519-383-3810
