The Board of Health

The administration and operations of Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) are overseen by an autonomous Board of Health. Members of the Board of Health include elected officials from four municipalities: City of Belleville, City of Quinte West, Hastings County, and Prince Edward County. In addition, local representatives are appointed by the Province of Ontario as members of the Board.

The Board sets the strategic direction for HPEPH,  and ensures the organization meets the requirements of provincial legislation, as well as the needs of our community.

Board Meetings

The Board of Health typically meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:30 to 11:00 am unless otherwise noted. Board meetings are held at our main office located at 179 North Park Street, Belleville.
