My apologies to non-Dartmouth residents. However, if you live in Nova Scotia, you’ll have a community health board for your district. Other provinces and places in other countries may have equivalent bodies and it’s worth checking into.

I’m shamelessly promoting the DCHB, of which I’m a volunteer member, as I think they’ve done (and we’re doing) great work in the community. We’re here to work toward improving the health of Dartmouthians and to act as the liaison between residents and Capital Health. We do this through advocacy, education, events, various other activities, and reporting to Capital Health.

Did you know that we offer grants to non-profit organizations in Dartmouth? We do this twice a year, once in the fall, and once in the spring. Find out more here. We also give a monthly award to an outstanding volunteer in our community. Do you know someone who is making a difference in Dartmouth through volunteer work? Just send off a quick email to info@dchb.ca with the name of the person you’d like to nominate, where they volunteer, and why they’re so great.
