Alberta Food Safety Legislation

The Food Handler Certification Course provided by the Canadian Institute of Food Safety is approved under Section 31 of the Food Regulation in Alberta.

Food safety training is recommended for all staff in Alberta food businesses, however at a minimum the following rules must be followed:

  1. If there are 6 or more food handlers (including wait staff) working on the premises then at at least one person with an approved food safety certificate must be present
  2. If there are 5 or fewer food handlers (including wait staff) working on the premises, then there must be at least one person with an approved food safety certificate who works for the business, but they don’t necessarily need to be present

These training requirements apply to most commercial food businesses – except for those that only sell pre-packaged foods.

Types of Businesses Impacted

Food businesses in Alberta that need to meet these requirements include:

– Bakeries
– Bars and lounges
