HSS Authorities

The Hospital Insurance and Health and Social Services Administration Act gives the Minister of Health and Social Services the authority to establish Boards of Management for health and social services facilities.   Before a Board of Management is established, the Minister must consult with the communities in that region for nominations to the Board of Management.    The Boards of Management are responsible for managing, controlling and operating the health and social services facilities in their region.   The Minister may make orders, regulations or directives respecting a Board of Management’s powers, duties and functions, and may at times appoint a Public Administrator to take on the role of a Board of Management. 

Below is a listing of existing Health and Social Services Boards of Management and Public Administrators for the Northwest Territories.
