Grey Bruce Health UnitThe Grey Bruce Health Unit will join with Perth District and Huron County Health Units as part of the restructuring of public health, as identified in the 2019 provincial budget. By April 1, 2020, a new, as yet un-named, regional public health entity will be formed comprised of Grey, Bruce, Huron, and Perth Counties governed by an autonomous board of health.

As a regional health entity with a population under a million, the cost-sharing arrangement with municipalities will shift to 70 percent provincial / 30 percent municipal, effective April 1, 2019, and stay at that level. Opportunities have been identified for one-time funding for this budget year to transition to the new funding formula.

This restructuring, along with other aspects of public health, are subject to legislative change and further consultation over the coming months.

The proposed regional public health entity will be comprised of Grey, Bruce, Huron, and Perth Counties governed by an autonomous board of health.
