Appendix A: The Chief Public Health Officer's Reports on the State of Public Health in Canada

As detailed in the Public Health Agency of Canada Act, the Chief Public Health Officer is required to submit an annual report on the state of public health in Canada to the Minister of Health within six months of the end of each fiscal year. Upon receipt, the Minister shall lay the report before Parliament on any of the first 15 days on which the House is sitting.Footnote 1

The PHAC Act specifies that the CPHO:

  • may prepare and publish reports on any issue related to public health;
  • may, in any report, refer to public health problems and their causes, as well as any measures that may, in his or her opinion, be effective in preventing or resolving those problems; and
  • must set out the source of the data and information used in the preparation of the report and methodology employed to arrive at the report's findings, conclusions or recommendations.Footnote 1
