Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is pleased to be supporting the 2023 International Plowing Match & Rural Expo (IPM).
The International Plowing Match & Rural Expo is a five-day celebration of agriculture and rural living. There are plowing competitions, a range of activities for people of all ages, numerous opportunities to learn about agriculture, near-constant live entertainment in multiple venues, hundreds of vendors and exhibitors (large and small equipment, lifestyle items and much more), a wide variety of food, an RV Park and more.
Public Health will ensure event vendors meet the requirements of the Ontario Food Premises Regulation 493/17 and the Ontario Personal Service Settings Regulation 136/18 under the Health Protection and Promotion Act. We will also ensure that drinking water provided for the duration of the event meets the requirements of O. Reg. 319/08: Small Drinking Water Systems.
