It's now possible for Yukoners to stay up to date with the territory's latest health inspection reports.

It’s now possible for Yukoners to stay up to date with the territory’s latest health inspection reports.

Environmental Health Services unveiled its new website this week, where users can peruse the reports for over 300 Yukon establishments that serve food.

The website allows users to click on an establishment and see whether any infractions were committed during the latest routine inspection.

Until this week, the Yukon was one of two jurisdictions in Canada, along with Nunavut, where health inspection reports were not posted online.

Access to information and protection of privacy requests were necessary to access the reports.

You can find the website at www.hss.gov.yk.ca.
