Research Facts
The first permanent Provincial Board of Health was created in the early 1880s. The Board worked to eradicate and control outbreaks of infectious diseases such as smallpox, typhus, typhoid, diphtheria and scarlet fever, as well as to ameliorate environmental abuses. It was granted partial departmental status in 1919 when it was allied with the Department of Labour. In 1924, health work receive full recognition with the establishment of a formal Department of Health for the province of Ontario. Between 1930 and 1935, hospitals and mental health services were added to its jurisdiction.
The envelope contained Valleau's notice of having successfully passed the exam for Nurse Registration (996028028)
