Members of the Health Group are retained to assist with the enforcement of the Public Health Act and its regulations.  

Field Law works closely with Environmental Public Health (EPH) and Public Health Inspectors to ensure members of the public are protected and can access safe food and housing.  

Lawyers in our Health Group work with EPH to offer legal tools, such as enforcement orders, to achieve compliance with public health legislation and, if there is a challenge with achieving compliance, we act as agents of the Crown in the prosecution of violations before the Provincial Court.  

Field Law also represents health care organizations in administrative hearings related to the appeal of Executive Officer Orders under the Public Health Act.
