Public Health is an essential part of the local health system mandated to support the well-being of individuals and communities by promoting healthy behaviors, protecting communities from health threats, and preventing disease and injury. 

Public Health is governed by a Board of Health made up of elected officials and residents from the communities served. 

Dr. Nicola Mercer reports to the Board of Health in her role as Medical Officer of Health and CEO of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.
