Why Your Voice Matters in Community Health Planning

Nova Scotians have clearly said that they want more health care providers and services.

We know there are many other ways to improve the health of our communities outside of the health care system.

Your Community Health Board (CHB) volunteers want to know what the issues or conditions are that prevent you, your family, and your community from living healthy lives.

With your voice, we can improve our health now and create healthy, thriving, welcoming communities in the future.


What are the steps in Community Health Planning?

We will listen to you about the conditions that influence your health, and together make some recommendations to change these.

Our process:

  • Provide you with information on conditions that affect the health of our communities,
  • Ask questions and gather information from around the Western Zone,
  • Identify priority areas of concern from the information gathered,
  • Consult with you to create recommendations to NSHA programs about improving community health.

The Community Health Boards will keep you informed of how your contributions influenced the recommendations that will be made.


What are Community Health Boards?

Community Health Boards are part of the health care system in Nova Scotia.

Community Health Boards were created to find out about the issues and concerns where we live, learn, love, work, play, and age that make us unable to be the healthiest we can be.

We are volunteers of Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA).

Community Health Boards report to NSHA on behalf of our communities.




If you have a question for us about our work, just ask. We will get back in touch within three business days.
