Collaboration – We work together as a team with our communities, colleagues, and clients to build effective partnerships.

Our Strategic Plan

In consultation with our community stakeholders and staff, the Board of Health has developed a Strategic Plan to guide our operations. With a vision of Healthy Communities, Healthy People, this Plan will help us achieve our mission of working with our communities to help people become as healthy as they can be.

For a complete overview of our Mission, Vision and Values, and the priority areas on which we will be focusing, we encourage you to review the online version of our 2019 – 2023 Strategic Plan.

We look forward to working with community partners to implement this Plan, and the positive impact it will have on our organization and our community.

The COVID-19 information line is operating 7 days a week (excluding statutory holidays) from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. All other program lines are operating Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

If you have returned from travel anywhere outside of Canada, you must self-isolate for 14 days and immediately contact Public Health or your local health care provider if you develop symptoms of COVID-19. Earlier this month all travellers were asked to self-isolated when they returned to Canada. Effective March 25, the federal government made this isolation mandatory under the Quarantine Act to better protect our most vulnerable citizens. Each of us must make the responsible decision to follow the advice of health authorities. It’s in everyone’s best interest to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
