OntarioFair

The employment outlook will be fair for Inspectors in public and environmental health and occupational health and safety (NOC 2263) in Ontario for the 2019-2021 period.

The following factors contributed to this outlook:

  • Employment growth will lead to a moderate number of new positions.
  • A moderate number of positions will become available due to retirements.
  • There are a moderate number of unemployed workers with recent experience in this occupation.

Close to a third of workers are employed in public administration. A smaller proportion of workers are also employed in the professional, scientific and technical services, manufacturing, and health care and social assistance sectors. Ongoing concerns and regulations related to food, environmental, and workplace safety could potentially sustain the demand for these workers. However, growth in public sector employment at the provincial level may weaken over the forecasted period due to budgetary constraints.

Environmental Public Health Professionals, also referred to as Public Health Inspectors, must obtain a Certificate in Public Health Inspection (CPHI) from the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors (CIPHI). Candidates must hold a bachelor's degree from a recognized degree program, complete a 12-week practicum and successfully pass an examination.

There are two voluntary certification programs for Occupational Health and Safety Inspectors available from the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP). These include the recently introduced Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) Certification and the established Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) Certification. Occupational Health and Safety professionals are increasingly choosing certification. However, this is not an occupational requirement. For example, Public Health Inspectors employed by the Province of Ontario undergo an alternative nine-month training program consisting of classroom instruction and field experience before assuming their positions.

Public Health and Occupational Health and Safety Inspectors may be required to work irregular hours and flexibility is considered an asset. Employers often require applicants to have a valid Class G driver's license.
