Working with Nova Scotians

Learning from Community Health Boards

Group Picture

Nova Scotia’s 37 Community Health Boards serve a vital role in the well-being of their communities. Made up of committed volunteers, Community Health Boards support the work of Nova Scotia Health Authority by advising on local perspectives, trends and issues by way of their community health plans. These plans in turn inform NSHA’s business plan. Community Health Boards also support many community-based projects and partnerships. This includes providing grants to community-based groups to help advance projects focused on health promotion and the social determinants of health.

This project was awarded the 7th Annual Ed Bowden Community Wellness Award by Pictou West and Central/East Pictou Community Health Boards this year.
