The Algoma Board of Health is the governing body of Algoma Public Health 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 public 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. 

To contact the Board Secretary, Tania Caputo please phone 705-759-5421.
