The Office of Health and Resource Development coordinates Northern Health’s response to inquiries related to natural resource development, including liquid natural gas, oil and gas, mining and other resource extraction activities. It is our goal to work collaboratively with industry, communities and other stakeholders to identify and minimize potential health impacts associated with resource development activities.

NH/HEMBC Contact Information

The Office of Health and Resource Development (HRD) serves as a central contact point for companies, agencies and communities. Resource Development inquiries, including questions related to health service infrastructure and capacity, environmental assessments and general consultation questions, may be directed to:

For Emergency events that require immediate connection with Northern Health please call: HEMBC on-call number (24/7) at: 1-855-554-3622 or 1-855-55-HEMBC

HEMBC will notify/activate the appropriate Northern Health programs (i.e. Public Health, Acute Care, etc.) based on the nature of the event/emergency. Please include this number in industry ERPs, for the use of permit holders in contacting Northern Health on a emergency basis.
