We have 200 employees who deliver provincially legislated public health services and community programs. We are governed by an autonomous Board of Health and have strong community partnerships throughout the Algoma district.

 

Our Code of Conduct ensures that we, as members of Algoma Public Health, work in a safe, courteous and friendly environment and that we nurture a culture of integrity and respect. 

APH is one of 35 non-profit public health agencies funded by local and provincial governments.

We work with individuals, families and community partners to promote and protect health and to prevent disease

 

Land Acknowledgement

 

We acknowledge the land on which we are gathered is in the traditional territories of the Anishnaabeg (aw-nish-naw-bek).
