Community Health Board (CHB)

Community Health Boards (CHBs) are groups of volunteers from local communities, who work together to improve health and wellness of their communities. They gather ideas from local community members and share information about how to improve and promote health and wellness close to home. They focus on the many factors that affect health and wellness in our communities including income, education, and sense of belonging, among others. CHBs share what they have learned about your health and wellness priorities with Nova Scotia Health, IWK Health Centre, and other pertinent community groups.

You cannot serve on a CHB, if you are:

  • An employee of the provincial health authority, the IWK Health Centre or the Department of Health and Wellness
  • A person who holds privileges with the provincial health authority or the IWK Health Centre
