The territorial land base in the Northern Region, as defined by BC Regional Health Authority boundaries is 592,116 km squared, 64.0 percent of the total land base. For the purposes of this profile, the administrative geographic boundaries of the Northern Health Authority (NHA) are used but, there are First Nations communities included in the Northern Region for First Nations health planning purposes that may lie outside these geographic boundaries.
The Northern Region is divided into three sub-regions: North Central, Northeast and Northwest.
The Northern Region newsletter, NORTH, is published 10 times a year. We skip December and combine July and August, when everyone is busy with holidays and cultural events (maybe even a vacation!).
