We inspect facilities that provide personal services such as ear piercing and tattooing
We inspect personal service establishments, which are facilities where a person provides a service to, or on, the body of another person.

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.
