A Message from the Medical Officer of Health

What does the Health Unit do? This is a question we often hear. The simple answer is that public health staff provide programs and services that help people stay healthy. We provide information to help residents in our communities prevent illnesses and injury, we offer services that help protect people from diseases, and we encourage people to make choices that help them live healthier lives.

Our work often goes unnoticed, but if you have eaten at a restaurant, been vaccinated against disease, gone into the water at a public beach or had a visit from a nurse after having a baby, you have benefited from public health programs.
