Name of creator
The Nova Scotia Council of Health was established one year following the implementation of the Medical Care Insurance Act of 1968. Its mandate was to monitor and evaluate health service planning and utilization across the province, including overseeing the economic efficiency of existing procedures and policies and updating health mandates. The first major document produced by the council was Health Care in Nova Scotia: A New Direction for the Seventies (1972), an attempt to superimpose a rationalized, overarching structure on Nova Scotia’s health care system. The Council was formally repealed in 2014.
Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives in 1984. Custodial history is unknown.
Scope and content
Fonds comprises several drafts of Health Care in Nova Scotia: A New Direction for the Seventies (1972) and includes related briefs, submissions, statistics, and articles.
