The Communities of Shelburne County: Our Place Our Time

Health care discussions in our communities have often been difficult and challenging. Shelburne County is asking for more constructive conversations to build a renewed and collective vision for our future. Your Voice Matters.

Background

Based on community feedback Nova Scotia Health Authority began a community engagement process in June 2019 to address the nature of the public discussion about health care in the County. There was agreement on a need to change the conversation about health care to be more productive and forward-looking. The current public discussion was seen as hampering recruitment of health care providers and harming relationships with current health care providers and staff who are also part of the community.

In June and July, community members, community leaders and health care staff were interviewed. A report was created from these interviews to examine the underlying issues associated with the health care conversation in Shelburne County. Please take a moment to review the Themes and Patterns report and upcoming community conversations which can be found in the Document Library on the right hand side of this page. This community engagement effort is supported by a planning team including community members and representatives from Nova Scotia Health Authority, the Barrington and Area Chamber of Commerce, the Municipality of Barrington, and the Town of Lockeport.


We invite you to provide your thoughts and ideas on the three questions below.
