About the council
The Health Care Human Resource Sector Council (HCHRSC) deals with human resource planning and development within the Nova Scotia health sector.
By providing an objective focus in occupational and labour market analyses, sustaining collaborative linkages and performing research to understand developing health human resource challenges, we contribute to a viable, well trained health sector workforce.
We maintain close ties with health sector stakeholders such as employers, employees, industry organizations, regulatory bodies, educational institutions and government departments and related agencies. Our relationships with such a wide base of stakeholders allows the Sector Council on-going access to the expertise, ingenuity and guidance that helps us address the human resource issues of the sector.
