Food Safety Training for Certification (Food Handler’s Program)
When the Food handler training and certification Toronto By-Law – BY-LAW No. 678-2006 was passed in 2006, the City of Toronto introduced me to Traincan Inc. to assist in furthering the program. I became a registered instructor for basic and advanced levels with TrainCan Inc. at that time. I also hold the food handler’s certification with Toronto Public Health. My registration enables me to teach/proctor examinations for food safety certification throughout Canada. The information shared in my workshops provide participants with food handling knowledge to comply with public health requirements as well as food safe practices in the workplace or at home.
