There are many online food handler courses available in Canada, and it’s important to find one that meets your needs and budget. Here are some factors to consider when looking for a high quality food handler course:

  2. Content: Look for a course that covers all the necessary topics, including food safety regulations, foodborne illness, personal hygiene, and safe food handling practices.

  3. Duration: Some courses can be completed in a few hours, while others may take several days. Consider how much time you have available and choose a course that fits your schedule.
