So many Vancouverites love to eat out, especially since there are so many good restaurants throughout the city. We're lucky to be able to choose from such a wide selection of restaurants, and that there are so many good local ones to support. Vancouver's city health inspectors regularly check in on Vancouver restaurants, and some have recently been charged with health infractions

Please keep in mind that restaurants who have been given an infraction normally resolve the issue quickly. The Vancouver Coastal Health will issue an infraction if there is a problem during the inspection. "In the vast majority of cases the operator can have the problem corrected promptly, sometimes even while the inspector is still there," says the Vancouver Coastal Health on their website

If the restaurant doesn't fix a problem by the deadline from inspectors, there are different consequences that can happen. "The inspector may use such actions as compliance meetings with the operator, ticketing (in some types of facilities), closure and removal of the operating permit/license, and prosecution," reads the Vancouver Coastal Health's website

Local businesses are crucial to Canadian cities and we are so thankful that there are so many great ones in Vancouver. Don't be alarmed if one of your favorite restaurants or somewhere you've been wanting to try is listed below because they have the opportunity to fix the issue and pass the inspection again later. 

Here are some of the Vancouver restaurants that have been charged with health infractions since December 2018, which were listed on the Vancouver Coastal Health's website
