​We inspect personal service establishments, which are facilities where a person provides a service to, or on, the body of another person.

Establishments where a person provides a service to, or on, the body of another person must follow provincial guidelines. Environmental Health Officers inspect facilities providing moderate and higher risk services.  Lower risk service settings are not routinely inspected however owners need to declare their ability to operate in a manner that prevents the spread of disease or injury. For more information visit BC Ministry of Health Personal Service Establishments.

As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
