TORONTO PUBLIC HEALTH

As the largest health unit in Canada, Toronto Public Health promotes and protects the health of 2.6 million people in the City of Toronto. We serve an ethnically diverse population, with members from all corners of the world who speak more than 160 languages and dialects.

Public Health Nursing
Public health nursing promotes and protects the health of populations by working with individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities.  We address the broader determinants of health through health promotion strategies, such as education, communication, social marketing, community development, advocacy and policy development.  Public health nurses work in three core areas: Healthy Families, Healthy Living and Communicable Disease Control.

Healthy Families promotes reproductive health and the health of infants, children and families. This area promotes and supports healthy pregnancies and healthy babies, the establishment and continuation of breastfeeding, early childhood growth and development, positive parenting skills and access to community resources.

Healthy Living develops and delivers services in the community, schools, childcare centres and workplaces. It is divided into two areas: Healthy Communities and Chronic Disease Prevention.  Healthy Communities services include: Injury Prevention, Substance Abuse Prevention, Vulnerable Adults and Seniors, Sexual Health, Mental Health, School Health and Urban Health.  Chronic Disease Prevention promotes Smoke-Free Living, Physical Activity, Healthy Eating, Workplace Health and Cancer Prevention.

Communicable Disease Control works to reduce or eliminate infectious diseases and promote sexual health through the following initiatives: Control of Infectious Diseases, Infection Control, Communicable Disease Liaison Unit, Tuberculosis Control, Sexually Transmitted Infections, Sexual Health Clinics, Vaccine Preventable Diseases and Needle Exchange. 

Workplace Values

  • Inclusive, respectful and equitable workplace
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Effective recruitment, retention and recognition
  • Open communication/positive work relations
