Western Kings Community Health Board

What they do

Community Health Boards are a committed group of volunteers that support the work of the Nova Scotia Health Authority by advising on local perspectives, trends, issues, and priorities. They contribute to health-system accountability by facilitating an exchange of information and feedback between the community and the NSHA (Health Authorities Act, Section 62).

CHB members are recognized volunteers of the NSHA, guided by the NSHA vision and mission.

This council, for me, as a teenager with no prior volunteer experience, has paved the way for great opportunities and learning.

After having just retired a year ago and working for 30+ years in a community based agency, it feels good to give back to the community by volunteering and making a difference, particularly in the health field.

Being part of the health board has given me a voice in my community and has helped me build my leadership skills that puts me ahead of my peers. I will forever cherish the experience I have gotten as being a youth representative on the Western Kings Community Health Board.
