Nova Scotia Community Health Boards

Community Health Boards in Nova Scotia are made up of everyday citizens of all ages and walks of life who serve as the eye, ears and voice of the communities. They collect and share information on local health needs and services as well as encourage partnerships and community participation around health initiatives. They also identify factors that influence health, help educate the public about the health care system and develop community health plans.

Qualifications to participate:
