Restaurants and food outlets throughout Ontario that violate food safety rules will face higher fines in the future, due to pressure from several health departments in the region. The current system of fines was established over 60 years ago, and the reform has seen some of the fixed penalty fines triple in size. Previously, fines for violations ranging from failing to keep food at proper temperatures to using unsanitary equipment varied from C$30 to C$105. Now, however, proprietors will face figures ranging from C$50 to C$375.
