Learn About Environmental Health Officers

The mission of Northern Health's Public Health Protection Program is to protect the health of northern communities in British Columbia through education and inspection strategies designed to reduce health risks to the public.

Environmental Health Officers, often called Public Health Inspectors, are vital members of the community health system. They safeguard the well-being of both the public and the environment by educating people about public health issues, monitoring facilities and development, and enforcing health legislation.
