Notes:
… not applicable
1. In November 2005 Prince Edward Island officially disbanded the four health regions. The three existing counties (census divisions) provide an alternative set of boundaries to retain relevant subprovincial CCHS data, commencing June 2008.

2. The six zones are aggregations of the nine District Health Authorities (DHA). Zones 1, 3 and 4 are each comprised of two DHAs. The remaining three zones change in name only with the following small exception. Mount Uniacke area, previously part of Zone 3 is cut-off by new DHA 4 boundary. Statistics for this area (population 1,114) will be included with DHA 9 (Halifax area). As a result, there is high comparability between Zone 6 and DHA 9 and between Zone 3 and DHA 4/5.
Zone 1 = 1211 District Health Authority (DHA) 1, 1212 District Health Authority (DHA) 2
Zone 2 = 1213 District Health Authority (DHA) 3
Zone 3 = 1214 District Health Authority (DHA) 4, 1215 District Health Authority (DHA) 5
Zone 4 = 1216 District Health Authority (DHA) 6, 1217 District Health Authority (DHA) 7
Zone 5 = 1218 District Health Authority (DHA) 8
Zone 6 = 1219 District Health Authority (DHA) 9.

3. On February 14, 2006 Cambridge-Narrows Village (population 717) was reassigned from Region 2 to Region 3.
4. For most data sources (with the exception of Census and Demographic population estimates), health region level data are not available for some northern health regions in Manitoba and Saskatchewan which have small populations. To avoid suppression in these areas where small numbers or sample size impact on data quality, data have been grouped with neighbouring regions, as follows: 
Churchill Regional Health Authority, Manitoba (4690) is combined with Burntwood Regional Health Authority (4680) and referred to as "Burntwood/Churchill Regional Health Authorities (4685)"; and,
Athabasca Health Authority (4713) Saskatchewan is combined with Mamawetan Churchill River Regional Health Authority (4711) and Keewatin Yatthé Regional Health Authority (4712) and referred to as "Mamawetan/Keewatin/Athabasca Regional Health Authorities (4714)".
5. Alberta health region codes have been updated to align with the provincial codes. Alberta Health and Wellness uses codes R1-R9 to identify the Health Regions.
