Notes:
… not applicable
1. Prince Edward Island restructured and collapsed the four administrative areas into one in November 2005. As of May 2012, data for Prince Edward Island are disseminated at the provincial level only.
2. Minor name and code changes have been made to Nova Scotia health regions.
3. The province of New Brunswick has made minor name changes to its health regions. The Regions are now referred to as Zones.
4. For most data sources (with the exception of Census and Demographic population estimates), health region level data are not available for some regions in Nova Scotia as well as 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:
  • South Shore District Health Authority, Nova Scotia (1211) is combined with South West Nova District Health Authority (1212) and referred to as "South Shore—South West Nova (1210)"
  • Colchester East Hants Health Authority, Nova Scotia (1234) is combined with Cumberland Health Authority (1235) and referred to as "Colchester East Hants—Cumberland (1230)"
  • Pictou County Health Authority, Nova Scotia (1246) is combined with Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority (1247) and referred to as "Pictou County—Guysborough Antigonish Strait (1240)"
  • Churchill Regional Health Authority, Manitoba (4690) is combined with Burntwood Regional Health Authority (4680) and referred to as "Burntwood/Churchill Regional Health Authorities (4685)"
  • Athabasca Health Authority, Saskatchewan (4713) 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. In November 2010, five new zones were approved for use in Alberta by the Joint Alberta Health Services - Alberta Health and Wellness Geographies Committee. These five zones are aggregations of the previous nine Regional Health Authorities.
  • South Zone is a merger of the two former south health regions-Chinook RHA (4821) and Palliser (4822).
  • Calgary Zone is the former Calgary Health Region (4823).
  • Central Zone is a merger of the former David Thompson (4824) and East Central (4825) Health Regions.
  • Edmonton Zone is the former Capital Health Region (4826).
  • North Zone is a merger of the three former northern health regions Aspen (4827), Peace Country Health (4828) and Northern Lights Health Region (4829).
