Board of Health

The Sudbury & District Board of Health is the governing body of the Sudbury & District Health Unit and is established by the provincial public health legislation, the Health Protection and Promotion Act, RSO 1990, (HPPA) and regulations. Boards of health are the governing body and policy maker of health units. Boards of health monitor all operations within their health unit and are accountable to the community and to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

All boards of health have a legislated duty to ensure that the public health programs and services required by the HPPA are provided to people who live in the health unit jurisdiction. Public health programs and services are intended to prevent the spread of disease and to promote and protect health.

The Ontario Public Health Standards 2008, published by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, set out the minimum requirements for fundamental public health programs and services for boards of health.

Board Structure

The HPPA specifies the structure for boards of health (see Part VI, Sections 47 and 48). The Sudbury & District Board of Health is comprised of 11 municipal members and up to 10 members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council (historically, the Board has held two such appointees). Current Sudbury & District Board of Health members are listed below. The regular Sudbury & District Board of Health meetings are held the third Thursday of the month (exceptions include March, July, August and December) at 1:30 p.m. The board may, by resolution, alter the time, day or place of any meeting.

Meeting Dates, Agendas and Minutes

Minutes are posted upon ratification by the board.
