Healthy Menu Labelling

As of January 1, 2017, all food-service businesses with 20 or more locations in Ontario must post the number of calories for the food and drink items on their menus or on display. This is required by the Ontario Government as part of the Healthy Menu Choices Act, 2015.

Cholera

Cholera is an intestinal infection caused by bacteria. The bacteria can be found in water or food that has been contaminated with stool (poop) from a person who is infected with cholera. In Ontario, an average of one case per year is reported and all cases have been exposed to cholera in another country while travelling. Places in the world with poor sanitation, poor water treatment and inadequate hygiene are more likely to have cholera.
