West Hants/Uniacke Community Health Board

Boundary and Name Change

In the fall of 2008 the West Hants Community Health Board underwent a boundary and name change. We are pleased to advise that our Community Health Board now includes the communities of Lakelands and the Uniackes (Municipal Districts 12 and 13 of East Hants). Within the Capital District Health Authority the West Hants / Unaicke Community Health Board takes in all parts of capital health outside the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The West Hants / Uniacke Community Health Board boundaries are:

  • Lunenburg County Line
  • Kings County Line
  • Halifax County Line
  • East Hants County Line with the exception of East Hants Municipal Districts 12 and 13 that are part of our Community Health Board

Our Mission Statement and Vision remain the same:

Mission Statement: To develop a community health plan through broad community participation and consultation that includes strategies to promote and improve the health of our community

Our Vision: A health West Hants/Uniacke community, responsible for its own health, moving the focus from illness to wellness, to prevention and health education, controlling health care services that are available and accessible to all; and a WHUCHB that helps to instill a sense of community and restore a sense of pride and ownership in health care services.
