2022 Board Self-Assessment Survey


The Ontario Public Health Standards (2021), under the Good Governance and Management Practices Domain, states: “the board of health shall have a self-evaluation process of its governance practices and outcomes that is completed at least every other year. Completion includes an analysis of the results, board of health discussion, and implementation of feasible recommendations for improvement, if any”. 

In order to meet this requirement, the WECHU developed a competency based self-evaluation survey for Board of Health (BOH) members. The survey includes twelve competency areas used to identify the strengths of the BOH, as well as opportunities to provide additional training and support for the BOH.


The survey will be sent to current BOH members via email in May 2022. A report will be presented to BOH members in early summer 2022. Upon request, Board members will receive individual reports, which compare their competency scores to the overall group scores, and will identify strengths and areas for potential improvement.
