Interested in volunteering with your local Community Health Board? Join a live Q&A with current volunteers to learn more about this rewarding opportunity to get involved.

Community Health Boards (CHBs) are groups of volunteers from your community. They work together to improve health & wellness where we live, work, play and learn. They gather your ideas and share information about how to improve and promote health & wellness close to home. They focus on the many factors that affect health & wellness in our communities including income, education and sense of belonging, among others. CHBs share what they have learned about your health & wellness priorities with Nova Scotia Health Authority, IWK Health Centre, and community groups, as outlined in the Health Authorities Act, Section 62).

CHBs advocate for actions to promote and improve health & wellness based on what communities say is most important. Guided by their Community Health Plans, they develop partnerships with local community groups and they award Wellness Fund grants to local community projects.

The Community Health Board is committed to being a group that is free of discrimination, values diversity and is representative of all our communities. Nova Scotia Health's Priority Populations are defined as follows: Indigenous Peoples; People of African Descent; Persons with Disabilities; immigrants; and persons belonging to 2SLGBTQIA+. Members of these groups are encouraged to self-identify in their applications.
