Our Vision and Mission

The work of our Board of Health is guided by the following principles:

Vision:
Healthy communities.

Mission:
Peterborough Public Health works with partners to promote and protect the health of communities in Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations and the County and City of Peterborough.

Values:
Our work is guided by the understanding that “health” includes physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of well-being.

Our values are grounded in two beliefs.  We believe in:

  • our responsibility to address the upstream causes of health and to strive for equity; and
  • respect for individual choice within the greater context of health protection and promotion for all.

Our work is guided by the following values:

  • RESPECT: We make all people feel welcome and treat them with dignity.
  • TEAMWORK: Our goals are best achieved through collaboration, cooperation and partnerships that are inclusive.
  • EXCELLENCE: We are responsive to community needs and are resourceful and innovative in our efforts. We are committed to life-long learning, ethical practice, evidence-informed decision-making, and professionalism.
  • ADVOCACY: We are invested in the health of our communities and through allyship seek fundamental and transformative change.
