The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment wishes to advise the general public that it is illegal for a food business place including supermarkets to sell or provide food, either on or off the food premises in a disposable plastic food service container.

A person shall not distribute, sell or use disposable plastic shopping bags after August 1, 2020.

Please note that Environmental Health Officers will be visiting food businesses to ensure compliance.
